Item Name Details  
Auto/Truck Tire

Tires can be recycled at the drop-off locations listed below. Most auto tire businesses and many mechanics accept used tires for a small disposal fee; contact specific stores for details.

It is illegal in the state of Colorado to dispose of tires in the trash because they cause issues in landfills. 

View Item
Bicycle Tire

Bicycle tires can be recycled the same way as automotive tires. They should be recycled at local drop-off locations. Fees may apply; contact location for details.

View Item
Refrigerator

Refrigerators contain Freon, meaning they must be specially recycled. If the appliance is in good condition, consider trading it in or selling it to a used appliance store. They can be recycled at the drop-off locations listed below. Fees may apply; contact specific location for details.

State law requires Freon be removed by an appropriately licensed company before disposal.

They should never be put in curbside recycling or trash.

View Item
Syringe / "sharps"

Syringes and sharps are accepted in the trash at the landfill only if placed in sturdy, hard plastic containers (like laundry detergent containers) and capped tightly. These containers should be clearly labeled as "sharps" or "biohazard waste". Learn more about proper sharps disposal here.
