While many of us sit on our recyclable items, like a squirrel hoarding a winter nut stash, until we find a neighborhood or community recycling event, there is a year-round affordable alternative. Check out SustainAbility, a one-stop recycle site.
SustainAbility recycles hard-to-recycle items including furniture, clothing, paint, vegetable oil, electronics (from cell phones to dishwashers and washers/dryers), as well as traditional recyclables that don’t have to be sorted.
Although they accept the same materials at both of centers, fees differ for each site. It costs $3 per visit to access the H2R Denver Center, but most items are free to dispose. So bring as much as you can per visit. There is an additional charge for some that contain hazardous materials or require special processing.
There is no entrance fee to access the H2R Arvada Center, but more fees on individual items apply. The Arvada site also charges a small $1 fee per visit for “single stream” (all sorts of items mixed together that you haven’t sorted) materials only. You can bring as much single stream recycling per visit as you would like. This charge is separate from any fees associated with hard-to-recycle and electronic items.
You’ll find a detailed pricing list here. Thanks to ichou for bringing this terrific resource to our attention!
