BGV Recycling 101

At Breckenridge Grand Vacations, we believe in minimizing the impact our operations have on the surrounding alpine setting. Over the years, BGV has adopted many sustainable business practices and environmental initiatives. From our investment in Breckenridge’s solar power garden to our employee gardens, we make sure we are stewards of our local environment. We invite you to join us in our sustainability efforts as we try to trash less and recycle more!

All BGV resorts offer single-stream recycling. Items accepted include all plastics #1-7, aluminum, tin and all paper fibers, e.g., cardboard, magazines, computer paper, newspaper and paperboard.

We are proud to announce that BGV is now participating in a bottle-to-bottle glass recycling program in addition to our single-stream recycling. In order to better capture glass in our recycle streams, we have teamed with a local waste hauler to offer glass-only recycling at our resorts.

The most recent EPA data suggest that national glass recovery for recycling is around 28 percent. We at BGV think we can do better than this.

Glass recycling bins and toters at all BGV resorts are affiliated with the color orange. Please help keep our single-stream recycling clean by placing glass bottles and jars in any glass-only recycling container. Please be on the lookout for these new containers.

And finally, did you know that you can participate in our composting program at any BGV resort? Simply ask the Front Desk for an in-room compost bin and, when you’re ready to dispose, we’ll take care of the scraps for you.

It’s not easy being green sometimes, but it is easy to participate in green and sustainable initiatives at your BGV family of resorts!

Yours in Sustainability,
Breckenridge Grand Vacations
