Materials Recovery Facility (MRF)

The Recycled Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) began operations in January 2010. This facility is designed to process for market the recycled materials collected in Eagle County and adjoining jurisdictions. Having this facility in place and operational removes the barrier to our local recycling programs of distance-to-market. Collected materials are separated, baled and readied for direct shipment to end users. The facility utilizes both mechanized and manual sorting techniques to separate glass; steel/tin containers;  #1 PET through #7 plastic containers; and aluminum beverage containers.  In addition, newspaper and corrugated cardboard are also processed.  This facility is owned and operated by Eagle County.  For recycling information please call 970-328-3471, for electronic waste please call 970-328-3463.
