Friendly Reminder to Canine Lovers

This is a friendly reminder to dog walkers that picking up our furry friends' poo is not only courteous, but it helps in keeping our rivers and community clean and enjoyable. Dog poo left on the ground is a major contributor to stormwater pollution. Bag stations are provided in nearly all Town parks, and regularly maintained trash bins are located throughout town, allowing for quick and easy disposal.
Our rivers and park-, trail-, sidewalk-, and public space-users thank you!

Lyons Historic District Walking Tour

Sunday, July 21

Lyons, Colorado is a small town that is rich with history. Redstone quarries and access to the Rocky Mountains created a perfect foundation for a thriving town. After Edward Lyon arrived to the area in 1880, he began planning a town. There are fifteen structures from the late 19th and early 20th centuries that are still standing.

On July 21, 2019 the museum will introduce a digital self-guided tour. Visitors will be able to use a free app on their phones to tour the Lyons Historic District. The digital tour will be available year-round, and will be remotely accessible for those who are unable to make it into town.

The free event starts at the museum with a short presentation about the creation of the district. Guests are then invited to explore the town at their leisure.

Scrap Metal & Styrofoam Pick-up

Wednesday, July 17 | 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. On Wednesday, July 17, Lyons Volunteers will be collecting residential scrap metal items and hard Styrofoam from residneces, and bring them to CHaRM for drop-off. This is a volunteer effort and there is no charge, but donations are appreciated.

To request the Volunteers to pick up scrap metal and/ or hard block Styrofoam from your residence, visit and fill out the online work request form. Lyons 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. >>
