There is no need to sort the recyclable materials. Place recyclables loose in can. Do NOT “nest” items or place items in bags or boxes.

Glass materials are likely to break during the automated collection process, resulting in contamination to other materials and making it more difficult to process materials at the sorting facility. Glass can be taken to the Montrose Recycle Center at 1901 64.50 Road.
Collection will be delayed until Friday of the same week. If your recycling cart is filled to capacity prior to the next collection day, a special pick-up can be scheduled by calling 240-1480. Unscheduled collection services will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis. City-observed holidays are: New Years Day, President's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
The effectiveness of the single-stream recycling program increases with the number of households that participate. However, if you do not wish to participate, please call 240-1480 and the city will arrange to pick up your recycling container.
