Woodland Park Panther Recycling

We are open Monday through Friday from 1:00 to 3:00.

Woodland Park Panther Recycling is a program within Woodland Park High School that collects and recycles electronics waste from the local community.  The Special Education and Transition students in Woodland Park, Manitou Springs and Cripple Creek-Victor High Schools have an opportunity to work in the recycling depot during their school day to learn important job skills and various aspects of running a business while preparing them for graduation and entering the 21st century workforce.  These youth are learning the importance of recycling and the effects of hazardous waste on the environment while learning how to disassemble electronic components in a warehouse environment. We are in our forth school year now and are providing an important and desirable service within the local community! We look forward to your visit and appreciate your continued support!

Our Mission!

To provide educational services to the students in Woodland Park School District who require further career exploration prior to graduation, thereby providing them with 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 thereby 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 be in compliance with all state mandated hazardous waste regulations. It is WPPR’s commitment to continually improve this program to align itself 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 are:
    • 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)
