Vail Honeywagon's recycling program is the result of our customers commitment and our commitment to the environment. By recycling, together we are doing our part to save natural resources, conserve landfill space, and save energy. Curbside recycling is the most convenient way for our customers to get involved in the process, so we encourage you to please do it and do it right!
When & Where ...Recycling pick-ups are made based on an every other week schedule. The service is on the same day as your trash day, but not at the same time. Be sure to have your recycling on the curb by 8 a.m. Please take into account our rapid weather changes. Use common sense - place a heavy object on recycling that might get blown around. Our drivers will not clean up recycling that has been scattered by wind or animals! Cover newspaper on rainy days!
What & How ...Household recycling is easy. Just follow these instructions when you place the items in the Vail Honeywagon recycle bins. Recyclables must be in Vail Honeywagon recycle bins to ensure reliable service.
Bin # 1: Newspaper & office Paper: YES: Place Newspaper (including inserts), office paper, magazines, and envelopes in the bin. On windy days cover the paper so it will not be blown around. NO: paper board (cereal boxes), cardboard, Tyvek envelopes, phonebooks, plastic bags or trash
*Cardboard can be recycled at one of the four Eagle County drop-off sites that we service (Avon, Edwards, Eagle, Gypsum) or in Vail at 75 S. Frontage Rd.
Bin # 2: co-mingled glass, Plastics, aluminum and tin
Glass -Please remove the lids and rinse the bottles and jars. All colors of glass are currently accepted.
NO: ceramics, light bulbs, plate glass, mirrors, or glassware.
Aluminum Cans -All aluminum, tin or steel food/beverage cans. Please rinse and flatten.
Plastics - Please rinse and remove lids. Flatten large containers. Acceptable plastic containers are those with a recycle triangle with a number 1-7 in the middle. These symbols are typically on the bottom of the container. Check our website vailhoneywagon.com for examples of these plastics.
