Lyons Volunteers Want Your Scrap Metal


As part of the Lyons Green Star Community and Zero Waste efforts, Lyons Volunteers is planning a pilot project to help reduce the volume of Lyons area residential waste that goes to the landfill for disposal, by encouraging scrap metal recycling.

The Town recycling bins do not accept scrap metal, but the ECOcycle CHaRM facility in Boulder does. For this pilot project, Lyons Volunteers plans to periodically offer to collect residential scrap metal items and bring them to CHaRM and drop off. This is a volunteer effort and there is no charge.

To request a scrap metal pickup, visit Lyonsvolunteers.org and fill out the online work request form. Lyons Volunteers will plan to do a pick-up of scrap metal at your property after they receive enough work requests to fill a small trailer load of scrap metal. Lyons Volunteers is hoping to do at least one CHaRM trip in the next year before September 15, 2019.

Scrap Metal means items that are 50% or more metal, including appliances (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 e removed by company licensed 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.

Ron Stewart Preserve at Rabbit Mountain Closure

Sept. 17 through Jan. 31

Park closed for elk management through limited hunting

Ron Stewart Preserve at Rabbit Mountain will be closed to the public Monday through Wednesday from Sept. 17, 2018, through Jan. 31, 2019, for year two of a three-year elk management program through limited hunting. If hunters are successful early in the week, the park will be reopened the following day. There will not be no hunting Dec. 20-30. The park will be open all days that week.

Three hunters per week have be granted an access pass by Boulder County to hunt this specific area only during this management period. Each hunter was selected through a random drawing of CPW-licensed hunters who obtained the subunit antlerless license (hunt code E-F-020-L3-R) and who then declared interest in this program. Hunters were required to attend an orientation class and pass a shooting proficiency test.

This hunting program is solely and specifically permitted as a resource management tool. There is no cost to the hunter beyond the existing Colorado Parks and Wildlife license system and Boulder County does not receive any revenue. Recreational hunting at Ron Stewart Preserve at Rabbit Mountain or any other open space property is strictly prohibited.

Library Construction: Recycling Center & RTD Lot

Recycling Center Moving: Late-September
RTD Parking Lot Closure: Late-September


As the new library approaches construction, the Town and associated partners have prepared the south side of the Wastewater Treatment Plant center (198 2nd Ave.), as the recycling center's new site, as the library will be located at the current RTD lot site. The town, together with Boulder County plans to have the recycling center relocated in late September. The library's construction is anticipated to begin in October.

In late September (approximately Sept. 21), the RTD lot will permanently close as a parking lot. Please plan accordingly; vehicles parked in the lot after September 21 are subject to towing. Additionally, there is parking along US-36 (eastbound) between Railroad Ave and Park Ave. The Kurt Carlson Skatepark will also be removed around this time, as the building contractors mobilize for library construction.  A new skatepark is currently scheduled to be built in Bohn Park, as part of Phase II of the Recovery Project.
