Aspen's Rio Grande Recycling Center (located on Rio Grande Place across from Obermeyer Place) is now a Single Stream System.
- All recyclables may be put together into any of the yellow topped bins. Click here
to see the items that may be recycled together which now include brown
paper bags, phone books, cereal boxes (paperboard) and milk cartons.
- Seasonal items such as holiday light strands, Christmas trees, and
residential yard waste is available depending
on the season.
- Do NOT recycle soiled
pizza and food boxes. Food grease and stains
contaminate the recycling process and are therefore considered trash.
- Trash is not accepted and illegal dumping is monitored and prosecuted.
Recycling pick-up services are offered by all the waste haulers serving the businesses and residents of Aspen. However, the specific rules vary depending on the hauler. Some use the single-stream system and some use a 4 bin recycling system. Some waste haulers working in Aspen also offer curbside compost service.
