Boulder's single-stream recycling program is great! Western-Disposal picks up from your house, and they make it so easy to recycle. You can also head to the Boulder County recycling drop-off center, located off of Arapahoe Avenue and 63rd. They've got HUGE collection bins for all recyclable items, and it's fun to dump the items yourself.

Yeah, everywhere I have lived (I have always been a renter) in Boulder has included recycling. It is so normal to me know, when I go home to visit my family in Ohio I feel re-cycle shock everytime I through away a bottle or can

Another source for the things that the trash services will not take in their recycling containers, is eco-cycle, you can find out everything they take at ecocyle.org . There is also the Boulder County Recycling Center that takes many forms of household hazardous waste, e.g.: paint, pesticides, oil, fertilizers and many more. There is a link for them on the ecocycle site.

Thankfully, our local trash collection company, Western Disposal, provides curbside recycle pick-ups along with the trash schedule. In fact, Western Disposal gives monetary incentives to reduce trash and increase recycling, which is a departure from the traditional "the bigger the trash can, the smaller the fee"...meaning no price break for the bigger trash containers anymore. WD provides 3 containers: 1 for trash, 1 for compostables and 1 for paper, glass, and plastics.
