Dual Stream Recycling & Yard Waste Composting
The City of Grand Junction Recycling Division is now introducing Dual Stream Recycling as part of its Trash and Recycling Services. The City recognizes the importance of diverting recyclables and organics from the landfill and works every day to expand and improve our sustainability efforts.
In March 2023, the City began phasing in areas to receive curbside collection of recycling separated into two bins, or dual stream. Residents are being notified by mail as areas are phased into the program. To retain the value of the recyclables and accommodate the current facility, glass will no longer be accepted curbside with the dual stream program. Glass is accepted at the Recycling Drop Off Center at 333 West Avenue as well as three neighborhood glass-only drop sites. For more information on glass recycling locations, call 970-256-4136.
Collection of recyclable materials will now be performed by an automated truck which will increase the number of households the City can service on a daily basis. The rates are comparable to what customers are accustomed to paying for trash only service and offer a greater value. If customers recycle more, they can reduce the size of their trash can, which results in a lower cost for trash service.
