Drop Unwanted Medicine at Longmont United Hospital
Don’t flush medications down the sink or toilet. Drugs can pass through the wastewater treatment plant and enter the St. Vrain River.

All medications from residents are accepted. For more information, visit www.ci.longmont.co.us/pwwu/enviro/rx.htm or call 303-651-8416.
Purge Your Spurge This Weekend
Myrtle spurge is a noxious weed that can take over landscapes and endanger people, plants and wildlife. Pulling and digging are the most effective ways to remove this weed, and from 9 am to 2 pm on Saturday, April 26, you can take your bagged spurge plants to the Boulder County Fairgrounds and receive free native plants in exchange. Be sure to wear gloves, long sleeves and eye protection when pulling spurge as all parts of the plant are poisonous. For more information about this event, call 303-651-8451 or email email@example.com.
Coffee with Council on Saturday
Longmont City Council is hosting Coffee with Council from 9 to 10 am on Saturday, April 26, at Red Frog Coffee, 15 Ken Pratt Boulevard. At this event, you can talk informally with at least two council members on any topic of your choice. Council members Polly Christensen and Jeff Moore are scheduled to attend. For information about council meetings and agendas, call the City Clerk’s Office at 303-651-8649.
"Project Sticker Shock" to Target Adults Who Provide Alcohol to Youth
The City of Longmont’s Youth Council along with support from the Boulder County Healthy Youth Alliance kicks off “Project Sticker Shock” a youth-led initiative to change adult attitudes about selling and providing alcohol to minors. Project Sticker Shock kicks off with a media event outside of Lucky’s Liquor on April 26, at 11:30 am. “Project Sticker Shock” materials were created by the youth involved in the City’s Youth Council, to remind the general public of the consequences of underage drinking and providing alcohol to minors.
