Avon, CO – Did you know Americans create 25% more trash during the holidays? On Saturday, January 5th, several organizations are teaming up to host a Post-Holiday Recycling Event for hard-to-recycle items. This provides the community an option to incorporate reuse and recycle options and reduce their environmental impact during the holidays.  The event will take place at the old Avon Town Hall, located at 1 Lake Street, from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Residents of Eagle County are encouraged to take advantage of this easy and affordable option to dispose of unwanted recyclables. A wide variety of items will be accepted, including:

  • Bulbs and batteries
  • Christmas lights
  • Electronics
  • Paper shredding
  • Styrofoam
  • Textiles


Please note that fees will apply for electronics, bulbs, batteries and paper shredding. Electronic recyclables include electronic devices that are used for entertainment media such as movies, music, video games and their accessories. Computer monitors, CPUs, CD/DVD/VCR players, radios, printers, keyboards, televisions, stereos, speakers, game stations and other similar items will be accepted. Residents that anticipate bringing large loads to the Event are highly encouraged to provide advanced notification by calling 970-476-3511. Staff from the various host organizations will be managing all aspects of the event, including accepting materials, collecting fees and sorting the items into appropriate containers in preparation for shipment to Denver. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Climate Action Collaborative for the Eagle County community to help reduce carbon emissions 25% by 2025 and 80% by 2050.
