Recycling festival offers many services
By Lisa Crockett
A county-wide event to be held in Parker will provide valuable recycling services, while also benefitting needy families in the area.
The 2012 Summer Recycling Festival will be held at Sports Authority Stadium, located at 11901 Newlin Gulch Blvd. on July 21, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. The newly-opened Hess Road provides direct and quick access to the event for Castle Pines residents.
Services provided include personal document shredding and environmentally-friendly disposal and recycling of electronics. This includes televisions, cell phones, scanners, monitors, stereos, and virtually anything else with a plug.
A nominal fee for recycling and shredding will be assessed, and donations will be collected for the Parker Task Force.
For a list of acceptable items for recycling, as well as a complete list of fees and a $5 coupon for use at the event, visit www.douglas.co.us/recycling/.
