EAGLE — Eagle County Solid Waste & Recycling has been awarded a rebate of $20,297 from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment for operating six free public recycling drop-off sites in the county.

The amount was calculated based on tons recycled and one-way miles, up to 250, traveled for each recycled material, as well as the total number of eligible drop-off sites. Eagle County Solid Waste & Recycling has received the rebate every cycle, which runs from July through June, since 2011.
