Carbondale hosts recycling day on Sept. 7
CARBONDALE — The town government is hosting its annual Hazardous Waste Recycling Day on Sept. 7, but this year residents can add E-Waste and CFL (compact fluorescent) bulbs to the list of what they can dump for free.
As historically has been the case, the town is inviting town residents to drop off various hazardous waste items, ranging from oil based paints to batteries, cleaning supplies, anti-freeze, oil, solvents, aerosols and pesticides. Those who live outside the town’s boundaries must pay $25.
Also welcome are car tires, but disposal costs $4 per tire, or $10 apiece for larger tires, and an extra $5 each if they are on rims.
Harder to dump items, such as computers, printers and television sets, also will be accepted.
All items to be dumped should be taken to the parking lot across Fourth Street from Town Hall (northeast corner of Fourth and Colorado) between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., and town workers will take it from there.
Minimal fees will be applied to some items, according to the town.
Go to carbondalegov.org for more information, or call 970-963-2733.
Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.
If you don't follow the rules, your comment may be deleted.
Citing employee safety and cost effectiveness, the city will soon relocate the five departments currently housed in its Municipal Operations Center (MOC).
