Sole Location at M&O Only Open to City Residents; Will Help Ensure Items Dropped Off Are Recycled
The city's public recycle bins have been moved to the Maintenance & Operations Facility (M&O), 12301 Claude Court. Recyclables will be accepted from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays and also every Saturday of the month through November. Now, ONLY Northglenn residents will be allowed to use them.
Due to misuse, in March the city shut down the recycling drop-off spots at Jaycee Park and Northwest Open Space.
Unfortunately, some of the items dropped off at the old sites were not recyclable. This forced staff to take them to the landfill instead of the recycling plant. At M&O, staff will monitor the station to make sure appropriate items are being dropped off so they are recycled as intended.
Another option for residents who have trash service from the city is curbside recycling for no extra cost. Call 303.450.4004 to request a blue-lid recycling cart.
