The Boulder County Hazardous Materials Management Facility is OPEN as of Wednesday, June 3rd. Click here for more information about hours, safety protocols, making an appointment and more.


The Eco-Cycle/City of Boulder Center for Hard-to-Recycle Materials (CHaRM) to reopen to the public beginning Tuesday, April 28, 2020.


Please Observe New Covid-19 Protocols:


Given the high degree of customer/staff interaction at the Eco-Cycle/City of Boulder Center for Hard to Recycle Materials (CHaRM), the facility has been closed in compliance with the City of Boulder’s local emergency declaration and efforts to avoid the spread of COVID-19. However, the CHaRM is OPEN with strict new protocols to serve the community while limiting exposure between and among customers and staff. 



All visitors to the CHaRM will be required to:

  • Place electronics you're dropping off for recycling in the very back of your vehicle (trunk or truck bed) so they can be easily accessed by our staff while maintaining a safe distance. Vehicles not adhering to this requirement will be asked to exit the CHaRM yard, relocate their electronics, and come through the line again. Otherwise, please follow instructions from our Blue Star Recyclers partners for unloading your own vehicle.

  • Wear a mask or face covering at all times (our staff will do the same)

  • Pay with credit card ONLY with a self-pay system  (NO cash or checks will be accepted)

  • Observe 6-foot distancing areas marked off around drop-off bins

  • Stay in your car to wait your turn until customers in front of you have cleared the area around a drop-off bin you wish to use

  • Unload your own vehicles (please bring help if needed, as our staff has been directed to maintain a 6-foot distance)

  • Please read signs guiding you through our new transaction processes

We look forward to seeing you and serving your hard-to-recycle needs! Please visit www.ecocycle.org/charm for a full list of materials accepted, as well as prices. Please email recycle@ecocycle.org or call 303-444-6634 with questions.


NOTE: The Resource Central Yard, adjacent to the Eco-Cycle CHaRM, is run by Resource Central and will be observing a different schedule and timeline. Please visit resourcecentral.org for updates.  



YOU can recycle more types of plastics in Boulder County than ever before! 


The Boulder County Recycling Center, operated by Eco-Cycle, has completed major upgrades. That means the publicly-owned facility now accepts more types of plastics for recycling — something the public has been requesting for a long time!
