Data Security

You are solely responsible for protecting personal information stored on the hard drive of computers or printers prior to recycling. Simply deleting files and reformatting the hard drive does not guarantee that all of your data will be destroyed. A better approach is to use special disk-wiping software designed to protect sensitive data. Another option is to remove your hard drive, either through a reputable vendor or by doing it yourself. You may destroy the hard drive by hammering a nail through it in several places or by deeply scratching the surface. Once you've secured your information, bring the drive to a professional recycler or to the HHW for disposal.

Where to Recycle

If you are living in a single-family or duplex residence in the Eagle Valley and use Vail Honeywagon or Waste Management, curbside pickup is available for the most common household recyclables. Contact your waste hauler for details:

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.
