Did You Know: Wyoming Conservation Corps and Glass Recycling

Founded in 2006 and housed in the University of Wyoming, the Wyoming Conservation Corps (WCC) continues the legacy of the 1930’s Civilian Conservation Corps and the 1970’s Youth Conservation Corps.

Like those conservation corps that came before it, WCC carries out the highest caliber of service for Wyoming’s public lands.

WCC works in partnerships with several entities in Wyoming, including agencies and industry companies working on public lands in the State, to advance the understanding and resolution of complex environmental and natural resource challenges by inspiring young adults to become stewards of our natural resources through leadership training and service learning to benefit lands in Wyoming.

WCC members have recycled nearly eight tons of glass since launching a glass recycling program earlier this spring.  WCC’s program was initiated after ARK Regional Services discontinued recycling glass, leaving Laramie without a glass recycling program.

The glass recycling program is free, but donations are accepted and have provided sufficient funds to cover the cost of hauling the recycled glass to Loveland, CO.

This summer, WCC encourages Laramie residents to collect glass for recycling.  WCC personnel will collect glass at the Wal-Mart Parking lot on the following days:

  • Thursday, June 19, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
  • Friday, June 20, 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
  • Thursday, July 17, 11 a.m.-6 p.m.
  • Friday, July 18, 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
  • Thursday, Aug. 14, 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
  • Friday, Aug. 15, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
