Recycling summit underway in Vail
Vail, CO Colorado
VAIL, Colorado ” More than 175 recycling professionals have gathered in Vail today and tomorrow to learn about the latest recycling trends and challenges faced by Colorado and the nation.
The 2009 Colorado Summit for Recycling, Colorado’s 20th annual statewide recycling conference, is being held at the Vail Marriott Mountain Resort and Spa.
This year’s theme, “The Next Generation,” addresses two aspects of recycling: getting children to recycle and changing the design of consumer products to make them more environmentally friendly.
Dave Newport, of the University of Colorado’s Environmental Center, will speak at noon, Tuesday, about how children can be motivated to keep trash out of landfills.

Wildfires have become more numerous, bigger and more destructive in the past 40 years. That’s a big deal in a town surrounded by public land.
