What do you think about a proposed enclosed Drop and Swap facility at the Pitkin County Landfill?
Pitkin County is considering building an enclosed Drop and Swap facility at the landfill. An outdoor Drop and Swap has been a fixture at the landfill for many years. It's a place where residents drop off furniture, fixtures, sports equipment, and construction materials, among many other things. The only trouble is, the current outdoor Drop and Swap is exposed to the elements and more often than not swap items are ruined by the rain, snow, and wind. An enclosed facility would allow the Solid Waste Center/Landfill to accept more reusable items including upholstered furniture, electronics and appliances, etc. These items could be recycled and reused by another family instead of ending up in the landfill. As the saying goes "One man's trash is another man's treasure."
Thank you for taking the time to answer a few survey questions for us as we guage community interest in this project.
