Colorado Springs Recycling

The  Single Stream program is the most comprehensive recycling program available.

You No Longer Have to Sort!

To prepare your items to be recycled please rinse out containers to remove as much of the food residue as possible. Also please discard lids, caps, and pumps on bottles. In addition, please make sure there are NO PLASTIC BAGS mixed in your recyclables.  The plastic bags will clog the sorting machines.

Give us a call today and see if we have started Single Stream in your area, 719-492-2050 or go to the contact tab and send us a message.
