STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Yampa Valley Sustainability Council’s Community Recycling Drop-Off is from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 11, at the Steamboat Springs High School and middle school parking lots.

At this one-stop-drop, residents can responsibly recycle electronics, mattresses, batteries, tires, appliances, bikes, books, yard waste, lightbulbs and much more. No paint or household hazardous waste will be collected at the spring drop-off event. Paint is recyclable year-round at Ace Hardware and Sherwin-Williams.

A comprehensive list of items accepted, prices and payment methods is available at yvsc.org/recyclingdropoff. Fees apply for some items. Most recyclers will accept credit cards. Participants also are encouraged to go online to view the map of the drop-off site and pack their cars with their recyclable items accordingly.

The Sustainability Council also is offering a Business Recycling Drop-Off from 1:30 to 3 p.m. May 11. No appointment is necessary. Not all items accepted at the residential event will be accepted from businesses. For a complete list of all items accepted at the commercial event, visit yvsc.org/recyclingdropoff.
