Recycle & Landfill



Residential Curbside Recycling is available to all Minturn residents.  If you are signed up for trash service, there is no additional cost for recycling.  Please contact Jay Brunvand at Town Hall (970-827-5645, x1, to sign up for this service, and to obtain the appropriate recycle bins. Minturn residential curbside recycling is currently dual-stream, so we recommend that residents have 2 bins.  

Please also note that cardboard is not currently accepted for curbside recycling in Minturn, however cardboard may be dropped off at the Town Hall recycling dumpster.  This dumpster is ONLY for items not accepted in curbside recycling.  This is not a full recycling center / drop site, and is not set up to handle the volume of residents dropping all of their recycling here.  Please utilize the residential curbside recycling for all of your primary recycling needs. 

Thank you!  


Compost Drop Site at Town Hall

The Town of Minturn is happy to announce that we will be implementing a Compost Drop Site at Town Hall. This service is available to Vail Honeywagon Compost Program members only (you must sign up for the service to participate). The compost dumpster should be available by the end of March. 

We know that several residents were already on the waiting list, as we worked to get this established. Thank you for your patience! To sign up for a drop-site membership contact Vail Honeywagon.


Alliance Recycle is now providing recycling opportunities for residents through a drop-off program at collection sites located throughout the county. For further information about recycling please call the alliance at (970) 569-3890.

Recycling Technology Items

Recycling electronic equipment is critical for our environment yet experts currently estimate that less than 15% of electronic components purchased are properly recycled. The remaining 85% are unaccounted for and often end up in our landfill. The goal of High Country Computer Services, LLC is to recover as much raw material as possible and ensure hazardous chemicals and heavy metals are disposed of properly.

Household Hazardous Waste Facility

The Eagle County Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) and Small Business Hazardous Waste Collection Facility (CESQG) is now open to the public. The new facility is located at the landfill north of Wolcott. For more information visit the HHW website or call (970) 328-3463.
