NEWS AND EVENTS
Locals at the grand opening of the Geotourism Center use the new recycling bins.
Driggs gets recycling bins! With help from the Teton Springs Foundation and the Driggs Urban Renewal Agency, TVCR purchased new recycling bins for the new Driggs City Plaza, the first public recycling bins in the city. They arrived just in time the grand opening of the new Geotourism Center. The bins are sized for use by tourists and residents using the plaza; please don't bring your household recyclables to the bins, as they will be quickly overwhelmed. The bins are made from recycled milk jugs, and used approximately 3,630 jugs in their production.
An estimated 3,630 milk jugs were recycled to make the set of bins.
Make recycling beautiful. The recycling bins at the transfer station are getting a makeover. TVCR thanks members of the Church in the Tetons for painting two of the transfer station recycling bins blue, kids from the Teton Valley Community School summer programs who painted murals on two bins, and teens from the City Kids Wilderness Project who painted the remaining five bins blue and then painted murals on two of them! If you have a group who would like to help paint more bins or add artwork to them, email email@example.com. Visit our Facebook page or click on any photo below to see more photos.
Volunteers from Church in the Tetons celebrate a job well done.
Kids are especially good at painting the lower parts of the recycling bins!
Join TVCR's new Facebook group, the Teton Valley Swap Site. The group is a place where residents can post items they want to give away instead of throw away.

Recycle. In Teton Valley, you can drop off recyclables at the transfer station in Driggs, or you can pay for curbside pickup service through RAD Recycling. If you take your recycling to other counties, such as Jackson, WY, there are some differences in what they accept. Check their websites for more information.
