COVID Protocol: Change in Mask Policy

After reviewing the latest guidance from the CDC, state, and county public health departments, Eco-Cycle and Resource Central will no longer require masks outdoors for people who are fully vaccinated. This includes customers of the Eco-Cycle Center for Hard-to-Recycle Materials (CHaRM) and Resource Central’s Materials Reuse Yard. However, we ask that unvaccinated customers continue to use masks outdoors for their own safety.


Masks remain a requirement in any indoor space at 6400 Arapahoe Road, regardless of vaccination status, including Resource Central’s warehouse and showroom and inside the CHaRM/Blue Star Recyclers warehouse. Please put your mask on prior to entering these enclosed areas. Eco-Cycle’s office remains closed to the public at this time, but our hotline at 303-444-6634 is open Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm.


Times are changing but the safety of customers and staff remains our top priority.


The Eco-Cycle/City of Boulder Center for Hard-to-Recycle Materials (CHaRM) is OPEN Mon-Sat, 9am-5pm


Please Observe 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 CHaRM now has strict safety protocols to serve the community while limiting exposure between and among customers and staff. 


All visitors to the CHaRM will be required to:

  • 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)

  • 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. 

  • 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.


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!
