Water Conservation - Quick Tip

Due to extended dry periods often experienced during summers in Lyons, increased water usage is commonplace for many residents and businesses. Implementing water conservation tactics can help conserve water and save money on utility bills - especially during the summer months.

Quick Tip:

Don't Water Lawns During Peak Heat, between 10 A.M. AND 6 P.M.

When you water during the day, less water reaches your lawn. Water at night or in the early morning to prevent water loss caused by evaporation and wind.

Recycling Center Moving to 2nd Avenue

Anticipated to move by the week of July 23

Due to construction for library, the Town and associated partners have begun preparation for relocating the recycling center (4th Ave. and Railroad) to the south side of the Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) center (198 2nd Ave.). Construction for the new ADA-accessible facility is well underway; the Town estimates the move to be complete by the week of July 23. 

The Town does not anticipate any lapse in availability in single-stream recycling* between locations - recycling will remain available at its current location, and a new dumpster will be replaced at the new site, upon its completion. 

*The availability and schedule of the cardboard-specific bin may vary during the relocation period. Updates will be sent as information is received. 

Tour of the Center for Hard to Recycle Materials 

Saturday, July 21, 10:00am - 11:30pm
6400 Arapahoe Rd, Boulder

What happens to your mattress after you drop it off at the CHaRM? What do those plastic grocery bags get made into? And most importantly, how do we squish Styrofoam into tiny blocks like in the movie WALL-E? This is a family-friendly tour, so bring the whole team AND any hard-to recycle items you have at from home.*
*$3.00 entrance fee is waived, but other recycling fees may apply to specific items—see our online price chart for more information.
