Recycling bins

Recycling service at bins like those in the Aspens area will be impacted later this month due to planned maintenance at the Teton County Recycling Center.

Use those bins while you can, folks.

Teton County Integrated Solid Waste and Recycling will be temporarily suspending recycling services in Teton County later this month: from April 22 through April 26.

The reason is upgrades to the electrical system and baler at the Recycling Center. 

That means recycling sites will either be closed, have their bins removed, or leave their bins unemptied during that six-day window. 

"The Recycling Center requests that the public and businesses hold their recycling until staff are able to service the community recycling sites," the department wrote in a press release. Service will resume April 27.

The roughly week long change in service will impact all sites, including:

  • Teton County Rodeo grounds
  • Albertsons
  • Teton Village
  • Spring Gulch
  • the Aspens
  • Hoback
  • Recycling Center

The closure will also impact specialty recycling of batteries, shredding, paperback and hardback books, textiles, small scrap metal, and electronics at the Recycling Center.

It will not impact commercial cardboard service. Cardboard collected on April 23 and April 27 will be delivered to the Transfer Station for storage until upgrades finish.

"Please note," the department wrote, "this is for commercial cardboard service customers only, no personal cardboard drop off is permitted at the Trash Transfer Station."
