Flowerbed partners sought

The city of Northglenn is looking for volunteers for its Flowerbed Program.

Volunteers adopt a flowerbed to care for during the spring and summer in the city. For more information, contact Jenni Murphy at 303-450-8904 or jmurphy@northglenn.org.

Electronic waste pickup ends July 1

Starting July 1, the city will no longer handle electronic waste, such as computers, TVs, monitors, tablet computers and other computer peripherals.

This policy was necessitated by the state legislature passing SB 12-133 last summer.

The bill makes it illegal to dispose of electronic waste in a landfill. Instead, it must be recycled through a certified electronics recycler.

Northglenn residents who need to dispose of old computers or televisions after July 1 have several options available to them.

Many local retailers accept electronic waste for recycling.

Best Buy, Staples and Office Depot have electronic recycling programs that are available free of charge.

There are some restrictions on what these retailers will take and it is best to check their website or call the local store before bringing in your items.

There are also private recyclers that will accept these items. Most of these businesses do charge for the service.

‘Godspell’ auditions to be held

Auditions for adults 18 and older will be held for the Northglenn Players’ musical production of “Godspell” by appointment only on Sunday, May 5, at the D.L. Parsons Theatre, 11801 Community Center Drive.
