Lyons Volunteers

Lyons Volunteers will Recycle Scrap Metal and Hard Block Styrofoam

Pickup from Your Property Included!


As part of the Lyons Green Star Community and Zero Waste efforts, Lyons Volunteers is hoping to reduce the volume of Lyons area residential waste that goes to the landfill for disposal, by encouraging recycling.

Lyons’ recycling bins do not accept scrap metal or any type of Styrofoam, but the ECOcycle CHaRM facility in Boulder accepts scrap metal at no charge, and the rigid or hard block Styrofoam for a small fee. This spring, Lyons Volunteers plans to periodically offer to collect residential scrap metal items and hard Styrofoam, and bring them to CHaRM for drop-off. This is a volunteer effort and there is no charge, but donations are appreciated.

To request a scrap metal pickup, visit Lyonsvolunteers.org and fill out the online work request formLyons Volunteers will get back to you to schedule the pickup of scrap metal/hard block Styrofoam at your property.

Scrap Metal
Scrap Metal means items that are 50% or more metal, including appliances, such as stoves, washers, dryers, water heaters, dishwashers. Appliances such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, etc., can only be accepted if the refrigerant has been removed (by state law, refrigerant must be removed by a licensed company to do so, before recycling or disposal). Items that used gas/oil, for example, lawn mowers, must be emptied of gas/oil to be accepted.

Of course, if appliances are in good condition, you might consider selling or donating them to a used appliance outlet, instead of recycling.

Hard Block Styrofoam
Hard block Styrofoam are the Styrofoam packaging inserts that do not bend, break or squash down when you try to flex or compress them.

Public Input Sought for Proposed Single Hauler Model

Public Input for Single Hauler Model

Board of Trustees Meeting, Monday, March 18, beginning at 7:00 p.m.


At the March 18 Board of Trustees meeting, the Board will consider a single waste hauler model in Lyons, per the recommendation of the Sustainable Futures Commission (SFC). The proposed model would convert residential waste collection to curbside pick-up by a single hauler, and could include recycling and composting. Each household's rate would be determined by the amount of landfill waste collected (normally established by the size of the container), which is referred to as a Pay-As-You-Throw structure.

The intent of this model is to decrease the amount of waste sent to landfills, increase recycling and compost, and reduce the carbon footprint of multiple trucks.

The Board of Trustees invites the community to voice their support or concerns on the matter, during the public input period at the March 18 Meeting.
