Calling all businesses with hard-to-recycle items

In May, Yampa Valley Sustainability Council is hosting a Commercial Recycling Drop-Off. At this one-stop-drop event, businesses can recycle scrap metal, ink cartridges, mattresses, paint, batteries, electronics, books, light bulbs and other materials based on demand.

Data/hard-drive destruction will be available upon request. This event is by appointment only and for businesses only. No residential drop-offs and no commercial drop-offs without an appointment. Businesses with hard-to-recycle items should contact Cameron Hawkins by May 1 at cameron@yvsc.org or call 970-871-9299 ext. 107 to discuss prices and set an appointment.

Community members with hard-to-recycle items can visit www.yvsc.org for a comprehensive, up-to-date A-Z Recycle Guide or hold items until the fall Community Recycling Drop-Off event.
