Recycling Center Hours: 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. Each day, an automated gate closes the access way at 7 p.m., and reopens at 7 a.m. the following morning. Sensors are installed to allow the gate to reopen, for anyone caught inside the recycling center area after the gate has closed (7 p.m.).The purpose of the gate is to mitigate unlawful dumping. Single-stream recyclables are the only items permitted in the recycling center, and dumping of any kind is prohibited (such as mattresses, strollers, electronics, etc.).We ask for the community's continued help in eliminating contamination of the recycling center. Common contributors of contamination include plastic bags (e.g. grocery bags and trash bags), food scraps and liquids, and non-recyclable materials. When placed in recycling bins, these products cause machinery to jam, reduce the value of the sorted materials, and require additional resources to resolve, which ultimately result in increased costs for end users.Now that the Recycling Center has moved to its new location near the wastewater treatment plant (198 2nd Ave.), please take a moment to be reminded of what should not be placed in the bins.If you see someone not following the guidelines, feel free to talk to them to let them know the rules—it takes a community.Check out a list of items that you should avoid recycling at the drop-off center, and visit Boulder County's Recycling Drop-off Centers page for more information.
