Scrap Metal – Recycle your metallic items.  

 Price:  Donation to Rotary Scholarship fund. $10 per item recommended.


·         These items must be completely metallic.

·         If the item is either unwieldy or very heavy, you may recycle it only if you can lift it or bring help to do so. 


Freecycle – Like a garage sale, only free!  

Need it? Take it!

No longer need it? Donate it.

Donate your usable, clean, unwanted items – or take something you can use.  No money changes hands. You shop without charge.


·         We cannot accept large furniture.

·         If you have electronics that work, first take them to the electronics station to pay for disposal (in case no one takes it), then bring it to Freecycle for possible reuse.

Estes Recycles Day, June 8th, 2019 is a Red-Letter Day!


The members of your Community Recycling Committee are using this activity to remove things that would otherwise end up in our waste stream, and then into the Larimer County Landfill.

Help Estes Park manage their waste stream in a more sustainable way.
