Give your input on the future of the Rio Grande Recycle Center!

The City of Aspen is looking for feedback on the future of its Rio Grande Recycle Center, which is losing funding in August.   Learn more, take a survey, and leave a comment: www.aspencommunityvoice.com
The City of Aspen recycling and waste diversion programs play crucial roles that fulfill our Aspen values of reducing greenhouse gases (GHG) and conserving natural resources. Since 1993, the Rio Grande Recycle Center (RGRC), located next to Rio Grande Park, has provided an addition to curbside recycling, playing an important role in furthering local waste diversion efforts and extending the life of the local landfill. 

Though free to the public, the RGRC incurs expenses, and to date, Pitkin County Landfill fees have funded the RGRC. Due to recent Pitkin County rule changes(External link), funding for a number of the local recycling centers in the Valley, including the RGRC, is being eliminated.

Given these changes, the City must evaluate the future of recycling at the Rio Grande Recycle Center. Your input is critical to determining the preferred next steps, which could range from continuing operations similarly to how they are today, to modifying the types of materials recycled, to closing the facility.  Visit www.aspencommunityvoice.com to give your feedback!
