Join us for a free, behind-the-scenes tour of our Trash & Recycling Center where you’ll get a close-up look at how we responsibly manage Boulder County’s waste stream while “Leading the Way to a Better Environment”. Your visit will last about an hour and a half and include a primer on recycling and waste diversion in Boulder County. Then it’s on with the show with stops at our natural gas fueling station, solar array, transfer station, recycling & baling bays, yard & wood waste site and organics transfer station. You’ll be right in the middle of the action so come prepared with sensible shoes and a sense of adventure. Parking is limited — please carpool whenever possible!
Public Tours: Western conducts public tours of our facilities the third Wednesday, May through September, at 11 a.m. Please note, space is limited so reservations are REQUIRED.
Group Tours: Day in and day out, Western Disposal engages in the important work of responsible waste management. If you are the organizer of a school group or environmentally focused organization looking to enhance your understanding through a visit to Western Disposal’s facilities, we may be able to accommodate a visit during the late fall/winter months. Please send your request via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are located at 5880 Butte Mill Rd. in Boulder. Follow the signs for the Administration building (1st driveway on the right) and come on in and let our receptionist know you’re here. Parking is limited and carpooling is appreciated.
