The June 30 Grand Opening of City’s Pueblo RecycleWorks was a big success!

Council President Chris Nicoll and Councilmember Ed Brown welcomed the crowd of 75, and gave a brief history of the project. Public Works employee and Project Coordinator Joy Morauski thanked all the partners involved, and Susan Finzel-Aldred, Health Department, gave an educational overview of the site and materials accepted.

More than 200 participants used the site throughout the day, and received magnets, recycled tote bags, gloves and free food and drinks. The ‘bottle tree’ recycled sculpture was on display.

Weekly hours are Thursday and Friday 1pm-6pm; Saturday and Sunday, 10am-2pm. Public Works staff are on site to greet, assist and educate users. Be sure to collect, sort and drop-off your recyclables for free after the 4th of July picnics, parties and gatherings!
