    If you have a Cheyenne Blue Top Recycling Bin, see how much cardboard, aluminum cans, plastic jugs, junk mail, newspapers and paper bags you can stuff into it.

    Pick Up Litter

    There are lots of Adopt-A-Highway stretches looking for love, even as close as your own backyard. With the Wyoming wind, there is never a shortage of litter to pick up and put into a proper trash receptacle.

    Plant Something

    With the recent snows, the ground is soft enough to plant in your garden or even plant some trees for a Wyoming wind break.

    Enjoy Some Cheyenne Water

    Here in Cheyenne we are fortunate to have some of the best water in America thanks to our high mountain reservoirs and the Sherard Treatment Plant.

    Hug A Tree

    On this Earth Day, you could literally give part of the planet a big hug. Pick out your favorite Cottonwood and embrace Mother Nature. While you're at it, you could pick up some branches to take to the Compost Facility.
