What makes Mountain Waste & Recycling different?

Exceptional Customer Service

Mountain Waste & Recycling is located here in the community. When you dial our local number you will reach our office located here in our valley, not a call center in a distant state. We live, work and play here in the areas we service and we make decisions as members of this unique community. We continue to live up to our commitment to provide a local service with unparalleled knowledge, value, and safety.

Unparalleled Level of Experience

Our local management team has more than 70 years’ experience working in the recycling and waste industry. The Mountain Waste & Recycling team is passionate about service and takes pride in educating locals about intricate issues related to our environment and the logistics of delivering these types of services within our mountain setting. The professional training, experience, and knowledge of the management team and employees at Mountain Waste & recycling is unmatched. We are your local company working to provide solutions that utilize forward-thinking and socially conscious methods to optimize the management of these materials.

Working to Save You Money

Our fees are often 12% – 15% lower than our largest competitor. We work diligently to hold our costs down in what is arguably the toughest physical environment for a company such as ours. Distance plays a very impactful role in the cost of our services. We are further away from key materials processing facilities and from vital part and repair houses. We all know that the cost of living in our beloved mountains is higher than a community at lower elevation and closer to population centers, but the lure of our special place keeps us all focused on providing value.

Diesel Fuel Costs and Fuel Surcharges

Our trucks operate at higher elevations than most trucks, and require the added torque and power that diesel engines provide. We pay more for diesel fuel than any other area of the state. It is our business to make house calls, and diesel fuel is a vital and significant component of our service costs. We do not control the cost of diesel fuel, but we must manage its impact. Therefore, we include a fuel surcharge in our delivery of services to you. We track the price per gallon of on highway diesel fuel for the Rocky Mountain Region on the Federal web site and raise or lower our fuel surcharge accordingly. That said, our fuel surcharges are usually less than that of our competitors. Click here for a more thorough explanation of our fees.

Local Connections

People are drawn to the natural beauty, open spaces, and strong community bonds that are created here. Despite that, this can be a tough place to earn a living. We get it, and we value your relationship, your time, your desire to manage costs, and your need to speak with someone who understands your needs–someone local. We take nothing for granted and hope you’ll reach out to us to learn how we can provide you with thorough, timely, cost-effective, professional services without all of the extra fees and without the disconnect of speaking to someone in another part of the country when what you’re really looking for is top-notch, quality customer service right here. When you pay for our services, it doesn’t go out of state–it keeps local people employed here.
