Where to Recycle in El Paso County

Recycling is the processing of used materials into new products to prevent the end-of-life of potentially useful items.  This is accomplished by redirecting an item that has already provided initial value and creating something usable, either for the original purpose or another.  There are many benefits to recycling:  it saves energy, decreases emissions of greenhouse gasses, and conserves natural resources such as timber, water, and minerals.  Many things that you see around you every day can be recycled.  To assist in this effort, El Paso County publishes a Recycling Directory designed to provide residents options to recycle many different materials.
