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 AM. 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.

Vail Honeywagon Recycling Update

Vail Honeywagon is committed to providing sustainable waste diversion services as a demonstration of our commitment to protecting the local mountain environment. Recycling is the easiest way for our customers to take advantage of Vail Honeywagon’s sustainable collection options and it is important that we all do our part in understanding the local recycling processes.

Recyclable materials that Vail Honeywagon collects and transports become commodities that are sold on a worldwide market. During the last five years commodity prices have fallen dramatically and foreign markets that purchase recycled material are shrinking. This has created growing inventories of recycled materials and further devaluation of the commodity.

Additional Resources

Materials not accepted:

  • Recyclable materials contained in plastic bags will not be collected for recycling *Extra charges may apply if we need to send a separate truck to pick up contaminated recycling

  • Plastic Bags

  • Coffee Cups

  • Styrofoam

  • Wrappers

  • Mirrors & Glassware

  • Soft Plastics & Packaging

Battery Disposal

Incorrect Battery Disposal Can Cause Fires

Common household items seem harmless, however, the batteries in them pose risks when disposed into regular garbage or recycling containers because of their highly flammable nature.

  • Remove the batteries

    Check the electronic devices you need to dispose of. If possible, remove the batteries. If not, bring the whole device to the drop off location.
  • Store batteries in a safe place

    Store batteries in non-metallic containers (plastic, cardboard, or glass) that do not conduct electricity if there is a spark.
  • Find your local drop off

    Find a local electronic disposal store, or find a drop off location near you.
