Special to The PREVIEW

The Archuleta County 4-H program supports Earth Day initiatives and offers several opportunities for community members to participate in recycling.

All 4-H clubs have been recycling aluminum cans for years. Your cans can be brought to the CSU Extension office any time at your convenience and placed in the recycling bins on the south side of the building, in the corner adjacent to the building’s south entrance.

Cans that are collected are taken to City Market for the aluminum recycling price. The six 4-H clubs rotate on a monthly basis taking the cans uptown. The money received from the recycling is used towards sending members to leadership training camps offered in the statewide 4-H program.
