Recycling Program

Single Stream Recycling Service

The  recycle program offered by Republic Services, our trash collection service, is the most comprehensive recycling program available. You are no longer required to sort your recyclable items – simply place all items in the container and set the container out on Monday, the same day as trash collection. Over 250 homeowners in our area are already enjoying the benefits of simple and convenient recycling. 

You can start or stop recycling service any time by calling the GNHOA voice mail at 719-488-5883 or by emailing GNHOA at  Please state whether you want to start or stop recycling and provide your name, address and phone number. Depending on when you request to start or stop recycling, you may receive a separate invoice or refund for the remainder of the billing period. Recycling container delivery or collection will be the Monday afternoon following confirmation of your order.  We will call or email you to confirm the container delivery or collection date and let you know if you will be receiving an invoice for the remainder of the billing period or a refund.

The recycling fee is in addition to the regular trash service charge.  The fee is shown on the Assessments page of this web site and the fee or refund will be prorated for unused weeks in a month.

The GNHOA covenants require that trash and recycling containers of all varieties be stored inside your garage or out of sight from neighbors except on trash pickup day.  Be certain that your containers are stored appropriately.

Questions and Answers

Can I start or stop recycling  directly from Republic Services? No! Because the contract is with GNHOA, Republic Services will not accept orders unless they come from GNHOA.  

How am I charged for the  service? The  service fee will be added to your semi-annual GNHOA assessment and fee invoice. 

What if I wish to stop my current  service?  You can cancel  service by contacting GNHOA at 719-488-5883 or Please state that you want to cancel the  service and provide your name, address and phone number. We will call you to confirm the pickup date.  Service and billing will stop when the recycle container is collected by Republic services. You will receive a refund or credit on a future invoice for any unused prepaid service.  

Can my renters start or stop recycling? No!  Charges for all trash/recycle service are the homeowner's responsibility so any changes must be requested by the homeowner or a designated management firm. If your renters want to start or stop recycling, they should contact you directly and request that you make the request.  If renters contact GNHOA directly, we will direct them to contact you or the management firm.

Is there anything special I need to do with the recycling container on trash day? The collection truck uses a mechanical arm, so the recycling container needs to be separated from the trash container by 3-5 feet.  There should be no cars parked in front of the container and enough space should be provided for the truck to stop next to the curb. Place the container with the hinge away from the street to ensure proper emptying and reclosing the lid when done.

To prepare your items for recycling, rinse out containers to remove as much of the food residue as possible. Labels can be left on cans or bottles. Small lids and caps from bottles and jars can be left on the container but should not be placed in recycling by themselves as they are hazardous to the operators of the recycling sorter.
