Just in time for spring (um…where are you spring?), Teton Valley Community Recycling has purchased new MAX-R recycling receptacles to collect aluminum cans, glass, and plastic bottles at two popular Victor picnic pavilions, the Victor Depot and Sherman Park. The receptacles were delivered and installed on Tuesday, April 10 and will be ready for your first picnic of the year.
These recycling receptacles are intended for use by park visitors, pedestrians, and picnickers. They are not for household recyclables which can be delivered to the Recycling Center for free during Transfer Station open hours Tuesday-Friday 8 am-3 pm or Saturday 8 am-1 pm. We hope these bins not only provide convenient recycling for park visitors, but also help people recognize that Teton Valley is a community that cares about recycling. RAD and the City of Victor will service these receptacles. A trash can for food waste and other non-recyclable trash is conveniently located next to the recycling bins to reduce contamination.
This project was made possible by generous grants from the Teton Springs Foundation, Community Foundation of Teton Valley, Idaho Community Foundation, Grand Targhee POW Foundation, and the City of Victor.
Teton Valley Community Recycling strives to educate and advocate for the best waste diversion practices for our community. By diverting recyclable material, the county saves tax payer dollars by reduced transport and tipping costs at the Circular Butte landfill. When we reduce our overall waste volume, we reduce our risk for any future liabilities at the regional landfill and we save resources.
Thank you for recycling responsibly!
