Sept. 7, 2012 - Site development for waste reduction facilities at 6400 Arapahoe Rd. to begin next week
The City of Boulder will break ground and begin site development work at 6400 Arapahoe Rd. on Wednesday, Sept. 12. The intended use of the property is to accommodate three local nonprofit services: the Center for Hard-to-Recycle Materials (CHaRM) facility, the Eco-Cycle offices and the ReSource used building materials facility.
ReSource currently operates at the site and CHaRM and Eco-Cycle will relocate their operations to the western portion of the property at 6400 Arapahoe Rd. once the first phase of development and construction along that section of Arapahoe Road is complete. The planned "Recycle Row" is part of the City of Boulder and Boulder County's shared commitment to enhance countywide waste reduction efforts.
The upcoming site development work at 6400 Arapahoe Rd. will include:
The retrofit process will also include minor modifications and repairs to the existing buildings at the site. No roadway or traffic impacts are anticipated, but there will be changes to how patrons navigate the site to access ReSource.
The City of Boulder purchased the property at 6400 Arapahoe Rd. in 2009 with funding from the city’s trash tax. Boulder City Council approved annexation and site review for the property in fall 2011.
During the next year, a public process will help determine the community’s desired use for the eastern portion of the property.
