Recycling


Summit County Resource Allocation Park oversees the actual recycling operations. High Country Conservation Center (HC3) provides a great deal of information on recycling and waste disposal topics. HC3 also works on Green Building, Efficient and Renewable Energy, and other resource conservation topics.
