The Lyons Volunteers are still at it five years after they mobilized to help the town following the flood of 2013. Scrap metal, which shouldn’t be added to the single-stream recycling, is being taken to ECO-Cycle’s CHaRM facility in Boulder.

Previously, residents had to wait until the annual Town Clean-Up day in the Spring, or take it themselves to Boulder. Now, the Volunteers are collecting metal fence posts, refrigerators, microwaves, metal roofing, and many other items that are more than 50% metal.



The Boulder County Sheriff's Office will participate in the National Prescription Drug “Take Back Day” on Saturday, October 27, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Lyons Substation (430 Park Avenue) next to Town Hall.

Bill Crist of the Boulder County Sheriff's Office reported that, “there were a couple of bumps” at the Planet Bluegrass concert over the weekend, but overall, “nothing major.” He also reminded those present that due to the leaf-peepers hoping to enjoy the fall colors in the mountains, weekend traffic through town will continue to be heavy for awhile.
