As the City of Montrose enters the 11th year of its Single Stream Recycling Program, it invites the public to download the 2024 program guide. For residents who have yet to begin participating in the program, the guide emphasizes the simplicity of the program and how to contribute to its success.

Single-stream recycling services are provided, without additional cost, to the city's residential trash collection customers. Since the program's beginning in January 2013, city residents have recycled thousands of tons of metals, plastics, paper, and cardboard, yielding significant savings in energy and natural resources.

How the Program Works

The recycling program is “single-stream”, meaning that all recyclables are placed in a single 90-gallon can that the city provides to each residential customer. The Single-Stream Recycling Guide provides additional details about materials that are accepted under the program and those that are excluded, as well as the collection calendar and arrangements for the year.

Download the Single-Stream Recycling Guide or obtain a printed copy at City Hall.

Residents who have questions about the program are invited to visit CityofMontrose.org/Recycling or call 970-240-1480.
