Steamboat Springs Community Recycling Day

It’s time to clean out the garage, that space under the stairs, and the piles under the deck!

This Saturday, September 23 from 9am – noon at the Meadows Parking Lot the Yampa Valley Sustainability Council (YVSC) will be hosting their annual Community Recycling Drop-Off Day. Numerous materials will be accepted for free recycling while some of those hard-to-recycle items, like electronics, paint, and appliances, have a nominal fee.

Please note that this is for residential recycling only, YVSC asks for only one vehicle load per household.

In an effort to capture more hard-to-recycle materials from our community, YVSC is also offering a Commercial Recycling Drop-Off from 1 to 4 p.m. This is for businesses and by appointment only. To schedule an appointment contact cameron@yvsc.org.

TAKING “FARM TO TABLE” BEHIND THE BAR

Bolstered by the farm-to-table movement, craft cocktails give mixed drinks a major upgrade.

Bourbon and duck fat? Egg whites and edible flowers?

Believe it or not, these are the ingredients featured in some of Steamboat’s finest craft cocktails, as bar menus around town are seeing the same farm-to-table concept that has been influencing chef’s menus, only applied behind the bar.

“It’s almost like you’re a chef, but for drinks,’ says Rena Day, Cocktail Curator at Low Country Kitchen in downtown Steamboat. “Each drink should hit on bitter, sweet, salty, and sour, just like a well-balanced dish.”

Less is More: Simplify Your Life

CLEAR THE CLUTTER and CLEAR YOUR MIND

Why do we have so much stuff? There are many factors that contribute to our lives, our minds and our spaces becoming cluttered, but did you know that hanging onto superfluous stuff can actually affect your well-being? It’s true. Studies have shown that in an organized space, people are more productive and they feel more accomplished, more in control of their life and more relaxed.  Check out this interesting infographic on The OKA Blog with stats about how clutter affects you, your work, your personal life, and even how others perceive you.

So, you want to simplify and get more organized. Where do you start? Whether you’re moving or just want to make the most of your home or your work space, the best place to start is by getting rid of clutter. “Clutter can cause chaos and stress in your life. We spend too much time looking for things, cleaning up, and rearranging our stuff,” says Jamie Wells, owner/founder of Simplify. “It gets to the point where your stuff starts to own you. The more time you spend trying to manage it, the less time you have to enjoy the things that are important to you.”
