Pro Disposal’s Recycling Program is the most comprehensive recycling pick up service available in the Denver metro area. We collect recycling on an-every other week basis with normal trash pickup.
With Single Stream Recycling You No Longer Have to Sort
We provide Single Stream recycling as a part of our Denver area recycling program.
Single stream recycling allows all recycling to be placed in one container with sorting done at the recycling plants. This makes it easier for anyone to make recycling part of their daily routine.
Recycle is picked-up every other week on your normal trash day. Please note that plastic bags should not be mixed in your recyclables. To help prevent this and make recycling even easier for you, do not line your recycling receptacle with a trash or other form of plastic bag.

Helpful Hints on Recycling Certain Products
Not sure whether the item is recyclable or not? Here are some quick rules of thumb to consider for each type of material many would consider recyclable:
Plastics: Only recycle plastic bottles and tubs. This is typically a #1 through #7 plastic and only pertains to the bottles and tubs. Here are some examples of plastic bottles that are okay to recycle:
- Soda, water, and juice bottles
- Liquid detergent and other cleaning supply bottles
- Condiment bottles (ketchup, mustard, etc)
- Milk jugs and orange juice jugs (no paper cartons)
- Shampoo bottles and liquid soap dispensers
- Peanut butter jars (please rinse out)
- Butter and yogurt tubs
Steel: Please make sure any aerosol cans are totally empty. This would include containers such as shaving cream and hairspray cans. Labels are okay.
Cardboard: Make sure to flatten cardboard. No wax-lined cardboard is accepted in the recycling mix. Wax-lined cardboard can be composted in a different service.
Bags:Only brown paper bags are recyclable. Do not attempt to recycle plastic bags.
Chip or Paperboard: This type of material includes items such as:
- Cereal boxes
- Soda Carrier boxes
- Tissue holders
- Other food boxes such as popcorn or microwave food boxes (not the cooking sleeves)
- Paper egg cartons are okay
- Paper towel and toilet paper tubes
Newspaper: We accept the entire newspaper including the inserts and ads.
Office Paper: All types of office paper are accepted. If you can tear it, we can take it. All colors are fine as well. Don’t worry about paper clips, staples, tape, and sticky notes. These are all okay in the mix. NO TYVEK (polyethylene fiber) plastic or overnight mailing folders.
Bulk or Junk Mail: This material is okay as well. Do not worry about any stamps or staples or sticky notes in this material, either. Remember, if you can tear it, we can take it. Again, NO TYVEK (polyethylene fiber) plastic or overnight mailing folders.
Magazines, Catalogs, Phone Books: Please discard plastic bags around these items and items such as CDs and magnets. Everything else is okay.
