Residential Recycling

All recyclables listed below must be co-mingled, cleaned, unbagged, and able to fit into the FREE 64 gallon container. Service will now be on a bi-weekly basis which will be every other week. Please contact our office to see which week your recycling will be picked up.

Teller County Waste now offers optional residential commingle recycling service for our trash pickup customers. Everything will need to be placed into the 64 gal. recycling tote that we will provide for our customers use. We partner with Bestway Recycle, (GFL) also known as Green for Life, see their Material Recover Facility to learn more about what happens with your recycle.


TellerGreen is the name of Teller County’s recycle program. This program will allow you to divert the maximum number of recyclable items from the trash to a Teller County Waste provided recycling tote. No longer will you be required to separate items to different containers, making the new program easy to manage. Additionally, we have added many new items to dramatically increase the things you are able to recycle.
