The value and importance to properly dispose of electronics is high. Most electronics contain hazardous substances that often leak into the ground when thrown into the trash. Eagle County has seasonal recycling events for locals to dispose of their old goods and promote a sustainable environment.
We live in an incredibly beautiful, natural environment that we share with one another and wildlife. Here at AMT, we make it our mission and core value to properly dispose of the electronics and other recyclable materials. It is also the reason we look out for events like the Vail Spring Cleaning Blitz to share with all our partners and surrounding community. This specific event is reserved for Vail locals. For more information, follow the link or look-up your local recycling center.
