The Town of Snowmass Village considers recycling as an important aspect of responsible stewardship to our environment. When done properly, recycling also helps the Town maintain low-cost solid waste services. Reducing waste volume by recycling and waste avoidance helps to reduce solid waste disposal costs.
Both residential and commercial customers play a critical role in making our recycling program successful by using proper disposal techniques. Contamination is the biggest challenge in maintaining a viable and cost-effective recycling program.
What Can Be Recycled?
The Town of Snowmass Village switched to a single-stream recycling program in spring 2014. With single-stream, all recyclables go into a single bin making recycling at both curbside and dumpster sites in the Village easier and more efficient.
