Get Your Green On! It’s Steamboat Springs Community Recycling Day

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

On Saturday, October 27 from 10am – 1pm at the Meadows and Upper Knoll Parking Lots 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 2 to 4:30 p.m. This is for businesses and for more information you can contact
