Our Mission

To provide educational services to the students in Ute Pass BOCES who require further career exploration prior to graduation, thereby giving them important job skills and readiness for a successful transition into the world of work. This program also serves as a beneficial service to the Woodland Park community and outlying areas through educating and providing an electronics recycling depot to local residents. The Woodland Park Panther Recycling Program (WPPR) helps to decrease the amount of electronics waste being wrongfully disposed of into the environment which may create toxic and hazardous conditions. In order to provide these services to the students and the community, WPPR has worked with the State of Colorado to become compliant with all state mandated hazardous waste regulations. It is WPPR’s commitment to continually improve this program in alignment with the ideals of the environmental leadership program.

Why Recycle?

  • Recycling turns something unwanted or broken into something that can be used again
    • Many electronics which appear to be at end of life can in fact have many uses if the components are broken down and processed…such as metals, plastics, batteries, and glass.
  • Many electronics harbor elements that are harmful to the environment and pose a hazard to our water and soil if tossed into the landfills! Potential contaminants include:
    • Lead
    • Mercury
    • Cadmium
    • …and more!
  • In July of 2013, a bill was put into effect stating that most household electronics must now be recycled properly and not dumped in the landfills. (See Senate Bill 12-133 for details and further information on the laws in your area.)
