Recycling

Curbside Recycling Program

Vail Honeywagon offers 2 different types of collection services depending on the neighborhood in which you live, Single Stream and Dual Stream. 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!

Please do NOT put recycling in plastic bags for collection.
