Snow Sports Recycling Program
The Snow Sports Recycling Program (SSRP) gives old gear new life. Its purpose is to divert as much unwanted snow sports equipment; ski, snowboards, boots, poles, helmets, from our local landfills, while preserving our planet’s limited natural resources through conservation. Moving into the program’s fourth season, approximately 350 tons of discarded snow sports equipment has been collected from five retail stores in the Denver area. That’s equivalent to 3,500 average refrigerators, or 375 -1967 VW Bugs.
