Satisfaction Guaranteed or your trash back!
CURBSIDE RECYCLING PROGRAM

Vail Honeywagon's recycling program is the result of our customers commitment and our commitment to the environment. By recycling, together we are doing our part to save natural resources, conserve landfill space, and save energy. Curbside recycling is the most convenient way for our customers to get involved in the process, so we encourage you to please do it and do it right!

When & Where ...Vail neigborhoods have recycling every week. Outside of Vail recycling pick-ups are made based on an every other week schedule. The service is on the same day as your trash day, but not at the same time. Be sure to have your recycling on the curb by 8 a.m. Please take into account our rapid weather changes. Use common sense - place a heavy object on recycling that might get blown around. Our drivers will not clean up recycling that has been scattered by wind or animals! Cover newspaper on rainy days!
