Park Partners With Town Of Estes Park For Second Community Cardboard Recycle Day
In January, Rocky Mountain National Park and the Town of Estes Park teamed up to provide an opportunity for area residents to recycle corrugated cardboard. The second opportunity will be on Saturday, February 28 from 8:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Residents are asked to bring their corrugated cardboard to the Rocky Mountain National Park truck/trailer site on Mills Drive. Please enter from Hwy. 66 to Mills Drive by turning at the Rock Inn Steakhouse. Continue up Mills Drive to where trailers will be staged to collect the material. The event will be repeated on Saturday, March 28.
Corrugated cardboard will be the only material accepted at this recycle event. No cardboard from packaged frozen food (boxes from frozen, bulk hamburger patties, hotdogs, fish, etc) will be accepted. No Paperboard boxes will be accepted (cereal boxes, gift boxes, shoe boxes, egg boxes, soap boxes, paper towel tubes). No newspaper or office paper will be accepted. No magazines or phone books, plastics, or metal of any kind will be accepted. Please recycle those items in other appropriate locations.
There will be Rocky Mountain National Park staff on site to assist residents and verify appropriate material. Volunteers from the Estes Park League of Women Voters will be involved as well. This effort is to help area residents with their personal corrugated cardboard recycle needs.
The first Community Cardboard Recycle day was held on Saturday, January 31. Approximately 60 residents recycled 46 cubic yards of corrugated cardboard.
