Donate your waste for a recycled art project. Do you have old metal tools or farm machinery? They could become a part of a permanent public art sculpture in downtown Driggs. Contact email@example.com, 505-577-4266 to contribute to this creative, recycled art project!
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 sign up for curbside pickup 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.
