Drop Off Location and Hours The drop off is located on West Avenue just north of Hwy 340 (Broadway), inside the City Municipal Services Campus. To get there take Hwy 340 (also called Broadway or Grand Ave) west from the 1st Street & I-70 B interchange. Turn right (north) at the second light, onto West Avenue. Turn left at the first gate into the services campus. Follow the signs to the drop off area. Hours are Monday thru Friday 7:00- 4:00 Saturday 9:00- 3:00 Please call for holiday closures E-Waste is no longer being accepted by GJ CRI. Please check your local directory for electronic recycling options. GJ CRI, in cooperation with the City of Grand Junction, is happy to provide residents with this recycling option. The West Avenue drop off offers convenience for City residents without curbside service and curbside customers with that occasional over abundance of material. It is also open to residents of the county and beyond. Household hazardous waste, tires, construction debris, Christmas trees, and/or yard waste are NOT accepted at the drop off. Please help keep the drop off an option! The West Avenue drop off produces, by far, the greatest amount of budget busting “trash” of all our services. If we are to continue offering the drop off option, we ask that all users review and comply with the requirements listed in this publication. Drop Off Safety The recycling drop off is not for trash disposal! Please remove and discard lids, plastic and styrofoam packing material, plastic bags, and other trash prior to bringing it to the center or be prepared to take it away with you when you leave. Please refer all questions about the West Avenue Drop Off and the curbside recycling service to GJ CRI directly. Please use special caution when visiting the drop off. Note that it is a one-way traffic pattern. Pull all the way forward so that the drop off bins are not blocked for other customers. Watch for traffic and equipment in the left (through) lane. Please keep your pets in your vehicle and an eye on your children. Thanks for helping us keep the drop off safe for everyone!
