YAMPA VALLEY RECYCLES DEPOT

A convenient, year-round outlet for hard-to-recycle materials

Yampa Valley Recycles Depot provides an outlet for hard-to-recycle items.

These items often contain materials that are banned from landfills because they leach toxic contaminants, spark fires, or otherwise create nuisance conditions. Hard-to-recycle items, such as electronics, are typically disassembled and sorted into various components for recycling. Recycling these materials achieves two goals. It helps to protect public health and the environment by keeping them out of landfills and reduces greenhouse gas emissions by reusing in lieu of mining and harvesting virgin materials.

Traditionally Yampa Valley Sustainability Council has offered bi-annual drop-off events for hard-to-recycle materials. These events have been highly successful, diverting more than 65 tons of materials in 2019. Building on that success, Yampa Valley Sustainability Council in partnership with Routt County and the City of Steamboat Springs, is making hard-to-recycle diversion convenient and sustainable by offering a year-round drop-off location for these items.
