Recyclable items accepted by Eco-Cycle’s CHARM (Center for Hard to Recycle Materials) include electronics, appliances, white block #6 styrofoam, durable plastics (such as lawn furniture, buckets, trash cans, barrels), clothing, books, bicycle tires and tubes, porcelain toilets and sinks, plastic bags, printer cartridges, and scrap metal. Yard waste, E-waste, mattresses, upholstered furniture, tires, and lightly used household items and clothes will also be accepted; hazardous waste will not be accepted. All “normal” recycling, such as paper, metal, glass, cardboard, etc. should be taken to the recycle bins on Railroad Avenue.
Refer to lyonscolorado.com for complete information, including details on acceptable items and price sheets.
The goal of the two-day event is to provide the opportunity to sell or share items on Saturday, extending the life of useful items. On Sunday, the SFC hopes to further reduce landfill items by providing responsible recycling and/or donation of usable items. Please join us in these reducing, reusing, and recycling efforts, as we strive toward a more sustainable Lyons!
Public Works Notices
Jetting Sewer Lines
Over the next few weeks, the Public Works Department will be jetting (cleaning) the sewer lines on the north side of Town. PW does not anticipate any problems for residents during this time; however, if complications arise, please call Public Works at 303-823-6622 x 15.
Flushing Town's Water System
The Public Works Department, in conjunction with the Lyons Fire Protection District, will be periodically flushing the Town's water system from May to October in 2015. This will cause some pressure fluctuation in the waterlines throughout town. In the past, some homeowners and businesses have experienced some damage to their property because the water heater was not installed properly. Please take a moment to make sure the pressure relief valve has a pipe hose draining into a floor drain. The Town of Lyons will not be liable for any damages caused to property because of this issue.
A pressure relief valve is different from a pressure reducing valve, though both are recommended for stable water pressure in your home or business. Pressure Relief Valves continuously vent devices at a set pressure; Pressure Reducing Valves reduce pressure from the water supply main, to ensure constant flow of water when the main pressure fluctuates.
For more information on Pressure Relief and Reducing Valves, including the Town rebate for reducing valves, visit www.townoflyons.com, or call 303-823-6622 x 15.
