Paint Recycling Event in Thornton

Coloradoans who have unwanted paint and especially residents and businesses of Thornton and surrounding communities are invited to come to Thornton’s Infrastructure Maintenance Center at 12450 Washington St. from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 27 to drop off their unwanted paint for recycling.

The event is sponsored by PaintCare, a non-profit organization that runs similar paint recycling programs across Colorado and by Adams County and the city of Thornton. This is the fourth year for the event.

Organizers will accept unwanted cans of house paint, stains, primers, sealers and clear top coatings (varnish and shellac). For more information about the recycling event and to secure a time to attend visit https://www.paintcare.org/thornton/. The event will be held rain or shine.

North Metro Fire, Northglenn Police seek BBQ teams

North Metro Fire Rescue District and Northglenn Police Department are firing up their BBQ smokers and going head-to-head alongside other cook-off teams to raise money for fallen and seriously injured first responders.

The two agencies are seeking teams to join them in the 2nd Annual Red and Blue BBQ Cook-Off from noon to 4 p.m. June 1 at E.B. Rains Jr. Memorial Park in Northglenn.

The inaugural event last year raised more than $8,500, which was donated to Colorado Concerns of Police Survivors and Colorado Professional Firefighters Foundation.

The Cook-Off will feature a whole hog competition between the host departments, a BBQ cook-off competition among all teams, live music, kids’ activities, vendor booths, a beer/wine tent and an opportunity for the community to sample BBQ from the teams while supporting the cause.

There’s no charge to enter a team, but anyone wishing to sample BBQ from the teams will need to purchase $3 tickets.

The area north of 104th and east of U.S 36 will be collected on April 27.
