In February 2013, the City of Durango launched their Single Stream Recycling program which enables residents to use one collection container for the majority of recyclable products. By making recycling easier and more convenient, the City has encouraged more people to think before they throw and rates of diversion from landfill have increased dramatically as a result.
The City of Durango’s Recycling program has become a model of best-practice within the region and been emulated by others in the surrounding area. In addition, the City’s Recycle Center continues to serve as a regional hub for recycling in Southwest Colorado, thereby having a positive impact beyond City Limits.
The City of Durango offers weekly curbside trash and single stream recycling collection to all city residents. Other materials, including electronics and glass, are accepted at the Durango Recycling Center.
