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 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.
