At Eagle Point, we feel privileged to work and live in this beautiful Colorado mountain paradise and are dedicated to preserving it for generations to come. Our desire to respect our natural surroundings helps create a better environment of our guests, our employees, the community and the land.
We began our green efforts at Eagle Point a number of years ago and we have continued our efforts each year though different programs and certifications. Last year alone more than 40,000 lbs. of waste were recycled through our single stream recycling program which brought our trash diversion rate to 41% for 2016.
