Common Recycling + Hard-2-Recycle items: $2 entrance fee
WHY Recycling is not free. The labor and technology to process materials is costly. For the past 3 years we have taken on these costs for our customers. In order for us to be able to continue to offer common recycling services we need to charge a small fee so that we can keep up with the rising minimum wage and unstable global recycling markets.
WHAT: A small $2 entrance fee per visit for common recycling and hard-2-recycle materials. You can bring up to one car/pickup truck worth of recycling per visit. This charge is separate from any fees associated with special hard-2-recycle, paint, cardboard and electronic items. 
**NOTE: Our DENVER site adheres to a bag system. Each bag of single stream costs $2 to recycle at our facility. Reusable bags may be purchased at the Denver site for $2 each, and can be used over and over again.
THIS IS DIFFERENT FROM THE SYSTEM AT THE ARVADA SITE.
