Garfield County offers a recycling drop-off collection site for county residents. There are three bins: one for newspaper and metal cans, one for plastic, and one for cardboard. The recycling bins are located at 20th & Pataha St., next to the Garfield County Road Department yard.

Your care in sorting recyclable items brought to the site makes a big difference. Garfield County receives a return on recycled items which helps fund the program. Dirty loads cost our county dollars! If you are unsure if an item is acceptable, please call 509-843-3710.
