Waste & Garbage Services in Boulder, CO
Eco-Cycle is one of the biggest non-profit recyclers in the USA and has an international reputation as a pioneer and innovator in resource conservation. We were created three decades ago by everyday residents who had a passionate belief in conserving our natural resources. These Eco-Cycle volunteers brought recycling to town in 1976, making Boulder one of the 1st 20 communities in the U. S. To offer curbside recycling. We continue to be driven by these same passions and innovative actions.

Eco-Cycle fills a community need for Zero Waste services and programs using mission-based business activities, including hauling recyclable and compostable materials from businesses and innovating and operating Zero Waste facilities such as the Boulder County Recycling Center (BCRC) and the Center for Hard-to-Recycle Materials (CHaRM). We then use revenues from these activities to fund our Zero Waste operations, education, outreach, and advocacy work in the community.

The fee is in addition to the recycling fees that apply to specific materials like electronics, bike tires and porcelain. The CHaRM is setup to accept payment at a drive-up window before you unload your vehicle. If you are bringing more than you will be able to remember at the window (that's great!), we recommend making a list of items that require a recycling fee to help the process.
