Does anyone have any tips on what to do with pine needles and pine cones that I raked up? Did
Park County have a Slash Program this year?

Hi Desgr1, no Park Co did not have a slash collection scheduled for this year. You just missed the first one in Jeffco this past weekend, but there's another next weekend, and again in August: mymountaintown.com/forum/5-community-new...dates-locations-fees

The EDS Recycling/Transfer Station in Evergreen might take them too for compost, certainly Mountain View Waste's Transfer Station near Pine would.

The transfer station just south of Pine Junction charges an arm and a leg for slash products. Your best (financial) bet is to go to the slash collection site, but Coal Creek is on the way to Boulder.

If your stuff is bagged and you don't want to keep it around until August's event at Inter-Canyon, the fee at the transfer station is $3 a bag for large trash bags (up to 39 gallon).

Put them into a big pile and burn them

VL....great well thought out idea......just wait to be sure burn restrictions are lifted. They make great fire starter if dry.......if needed.
