Party Try/Plastic Tray

Party Try/Plastic Tray

Plastic party trays and deli trays (such as those from grocery stores) are usually made from plastic that is not currently recyclable locally due to fluctuations in recycling markets.

Until further notice, plastic trays labeled with a #3, #6, or #7 in the chasing arrows symbol will be landfilled.

Residents may choose to throw away these low value plastic trays (labeled with #3, #6, and #7), or know that if these materials are included in the recycling bin, they will be landfilled until recycling markets improve.


The information provided in this tool is compiled as a service to Fort Collins Residents. Contact information has been provided for the listed locations, and it is encouraged that you call ahead to verify the location, materials accepted, and hours of operation. Inclusion in this list is not an endorsement by the City of Fort Collins.

Any recycler wishing to be added to this list may contact cmVjeWNsaW5nQGZjZ292LmNvbQ==. If you can’t find the answer to your question here, please call us at 970-221-6600
