Summit County Community Notes: 8-9-2012

The fifth annual Community Electronic Recycling event at Summit High School is Friday, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.. Metech Recycling, a certified e-Stewards Recycler, will be bringing a truck to haul old electronics away. People can just drive up to the truck parked in front of the school and our crew will unload it. Prices range from $5-$15 dollars depending on the size of the electronic device being recycled. Last year, we recycled everything from broken cellphones to huge, rear projector televisions. (One thing we don’t recycle is refrigerators.)

Over 95 percent of all materials will be fully recycled for remanufacture. No recycled materials will be incinerated, landfilled or shipped abroad to be dumped. Visit Metech at for more detailed info. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted.

Ten percent of proceeds benefit SHS. Students have elected to support the Activities Scholarship program so that all students have a chance to participate in athletics and activities offered.

The Breckenridge Heritage Alliance will celebrate the inaugural Theobald Award, recognizing outstanding contributions to the preservation of Breckenridge’s history. Join us for a reception Friday, from 4 to 6 p.m. on the Barney Ford House Museum lawn honoring this year’s recipients. Awards will be presented at 5 p.m. Appetizers and refreshments will be provided. Free and open to the public.

Join the extraordinary fun by contacting Full- and part-time residents are welcome.

Join the Girl Scouts today and become one of our volunteers. Both men and women 18 and older are invited to join. In addition to positions working with the girls, we’ve got volunteer needs in our offices around the state to help with paperwork and other administrative duties.
