Electronic Waste Collections Aspen May 21
The City of Aspen will be hosting a free e-waste collection event from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on May 21 at the Marolt Housing Complex parking lot at 100 Marolt Place in Aspen.
Electronic waste is almost anything that has a plug or battery, including computers, printers, televisions, and cell phones. Electronic waste is not smoke detectors, batteries or mercury bulbs. Other materials not eligible for collection include refrigerators, major appliances, air conditioners, thermostats, smoke/CO2 detectors, batteries, light bulbs, or any item containing hazardous chemicals.
The event is free and open to those interested in recycling personal e-waste. Participants are asked to remain in their vehicle while staff assist with collection.
Corporate e-waste will not be accepted at this event, but may be recycled for a fee at the Pitkin County Landfill. More information at aspen.gov/ewaste.
Get ready for drag queen bingo
AspenOUT and the Aspen Art Museum will kick off Pride Month on June 5 with a drag queen bingo brunch starting at 10 a.m. at The Rooftop Café (637 E. Hyman Ave.).
Mariam T, a San Diego-based drag queen and iconic personality for Aspen Gay Ski Week, will host the fundraising event.
“We are thrilled to celebrate Pride Month with this fundraising brunch,” said AspenOUT Producer Kim Kuliga. “Every year, Mariam T delights the crowds at Aspen Gay Ski Week, and we’re lucky to have her back this summer to support the Aspen Art Museum and AspenOUT.”
Aspen Rooftop Café will offer a variety of food, cocktails and mimosas. Tickets are $160 and include brunch, cocktails, and three bingo games with prizes from local businesses. All net proceeds benefit AAM and AspenOUT.
Feedback sought for future Burlingame daycare
The city is seeking community input to help inform design direction for the Burlingame Early Childhood Education Center.
“Anyone interested in providing feedback on design preferences is encouraged to complete the survey,” says Shirley Ritter, Director of Kids First. “The survey results will help the project team gather baseline information to create a successful, community-focused early childhood education program in Burlingame.”
The survey is available on Aspen Community Voice website (www.aspencommunityvoice.com) until May 22.
Now underway, the initial design phase of the project runs through August. The initial objective is to bring together groups of stakeholders, provide information about the project and conduct the survey. Simultaneously, the project team will conduct interviews and gather initial information before the designers work on the building design and site plan. The team will apply this information to conceptual design options in June. When a schematic site program is established in July, the plan will go through the public approval process.
