Branches and Yard Waste

Since 2013, the Town has discontinued curbside chipping. The Town invites you to drop off branches and limbs to Bohn Park on the old Vasquez softball field, adjacent to the tennis courts. Any material other than yard waste will not be accepted. 
Please remember that it is illegal to place branches and unwanted limbs/yard waste on Town & CDOT right-of-way property, which includes alleyways, as well as any property in the buyout program.

“Except by a permit issued as set forth in Subsection 11-2-10(b), no person shall in any manner obstruct any street, alley or sidewalk within the Town in any manner whatsoever, but shall at all times keep such streets, alleys and sidewalks free for the passage of vehicular and foot travel.” 
The Town will issue warnings to violations of right-of-ways obstructions, as stated in the Lyons Municipal Code; a summons will be issued if not mitigated after 30 days.

Discounted Solar and Electric Car & Bike Program 

Boulder County and its municipalities are providing an incentive for residents to live more eco-friendly, by offering discounted rates on roof-mounted solar systems and electric vehicles and bikes.

In 2015, the program facilitated the purchase of more than 750kWh of residential rooftop solar and more than 248 electric cars across the Front Range, equating to 5% of all LEAFs sold in the nation between September and December in 2015.
