Recycling and Waste Reduction

Recycling
Breckenridge recycles over 350 tons per year, equivalent to saving:

• 3,300 trees from being cut down

• 59 households worth of energy for 1 year

• 403 tons of carbon dioxide and 17 tons of methane (greenhouse gases)

Composting
Breckenridge composts food waste from kitchens in our Mountain Dining facilities. The food waste is composted at Summit County Landfill’s High Country Compost facility, where it is mixed with wood chips from trees killed by the mountain pine beetle to create a rich, fertilizing soil.

Wake Up Breckenridge
The beginning of the 2010-2011 ski season marked the 8th year of the “Wake Up Breckenridge” promotion. The day before Breckenridge opened for the season, reusable coffee mugs made of recycled plastic were given out free at Breckenridge coffee shops. The goals of the promotion are to thank the community and reduce waste generated by disposable cups.


To reduce our impact on natural systems, Breckenridge also supports:
Energy Efficiency
Fish and Wildlife Habitat Protection
National Forest and Pine Beetle
