Celebrate Earth Day!
April 22, 2011
WINTER PARK – Winter Park Resort celebrates Earth Day on Friday, April 22. Winter Park’s Connexion Council is working with Valley Recycling to offer a convenient location for the public to bring recyclables, free of charge.
Employees will be set-up to receive recyclables in the F-Lot parking lot at the base area of Winter Park Resort, which is located on the SW corner of the main entrance, from 2-6 p.m. on Friday.
Items that will be accepted separately include all metal, glass and cardboard. Recyclables that will all be collected together include #1-7 plastics, aluminum cans, tin cans, steel cans and mixed paper – office paper, magazines and newspaper.
Hazardous materials and trash will not be accepted.
“Grand County is a community which takes pride in our surroundings and makes a conscious decision to support sustainability, conservation and protection of our beautiful valley. Offering free recycling on Earth Day is one way Winter Park Resort can aid these bold efforts,” said Mistalynn Lee, communications manager at Winter Park Resort and member of the Connexion Council.
