Ridgway strongly promotes recycling, and Town recycling bins (and trash cans) are located in all Town Parks and in downtown areas. Ridgway festivals also provide bins for recycling and often composting too. The Town of Ridgway Refuse and Recycling Guide is located on the Town website, including a link to this Recycling Guide handout.
Information on our Ouray County Transfer & Recycling Station including hours and rates can be found here and in a Transfer Station Handout on the Town webpage. Bruin Waste provides trash and recycling pickup in Ridgway with those services billed by the Town.
EcoAction Partners has information on recycling & composting and a great handout on what can be recycled.
Single Use Plastic Bag Ban - In December 2018, the Ridgway Town Council voted to adopt an ordinance banning single-use plastic bags effective 1 March 2019. KVNF radio highlighted that effort and its young champions.
