Technology’s changed. New machinery and processes enable us to sort your recyclable items after we pick them up, so you don’t have to. You can contact Alicia Archibald (George.Engelhardt@gflenv.com) to set an appointment for a tour of our Material Recovery Facility here in Colorado Springs.
Reducing, reusing and recycling reduces the need to harvest or manufacture new materials. That saves natural resources and energy. While there is always some pollution in any industrial process – including recycling – manufacturing using recycled material is less polluting and less resource intensive than manufacturing processes using virgin materials. Recycling also reduces the amount of trash littering our streets or going into landfills. Besides being eyesores, landfills are a significant source of greenhouse gas and they carry the risk of air and groundwater pollution.
We make it easy, easy, easy! Simply throw all your recyclable items into your WayGreen cart and put it out with your weekly trash. Bestway Disposal stands for unmatched service, fair rates and 100% customer satisfaction.

Our commitment to our customers is that we are dedicated to protecting the environment and safeguarding public health through proper disposal and recycling.
Bestway Disposal has one of the most comprehensive recycling programs in the area. As technology evolves, we’ll continue to look for ways to expand the list of items you can recycle. Right now, you can combine these recyclable items into a single cart:
There are some items that technology does not allow us to recycle at this point in time. Sometimes these items are multiple materials pressed together or they may contain materials that we are unable to handle. When this changes we will notify you of that change. The list below gives some items we cannot take in your recycle stream. Keep these in mind when you are shopping if possible. Call us if you have a question about a specific item not listed below.
The cost for the WayGreen program is applied to your statement each month as a separate line item, $5.15 each month. However, recycling under this program WILL reduce your trash stream. As the amount of trash generated goes down, so will your service level needed. Potentially, the amount you pay each month could either be a few dollars more, about the same amount or even less!
Yes. If you participate in WayGreen, you’ll see a separate charge noted on your bill.
If you currently recycle through Bestway Disposal you will need to call or sign up online for your cart, one that works with our equipment. If you’re new to recycling with Bestway Disposal, you’ll need to order a WayGreen cart to participate.
Simply put your WayGreen recycle cart out at the curb or alley next to your weekly trash. We’ll pick it up at the same place and on the same day as your regular trash pickup. The time may be different since it is a separate truck picking up recyclables. **Please make sure to place each container at least 4 feet from each other.**
Only trash goes to the landfill. Bestway Disposal has two trucks to service your account to keep recyclable items separate from trash. Nothing is more important to us than our recycling reputation. We will verify our recycling quantities for you if you have further questions; just give us a call.
Simply call (719) 633-8709. If you’re not currently recycling with Bestway Disposal, we’ll answer all your questions and make it easy for you to get started.
Because of the cost involved in transporting recyclables and the low value of materials, Bestway has implemented a $10.00 charge for dropping recycle. If you are bringing a trash load there is no additional cost to drop recycle.
