Rocky Top Resources takes yard waste but where can river rock be recycled?

RECYCLED LANDSCAPING: I am clearing out the hideous landscaping in my backyard and starting over. I have to get rid of five huge juniper bushes and a few tons of river rock. Is there any place I can take this stuff so it doesn’t end up in the landfill? Will someone turn the bushes into mulch? Will someone take the rocks and reuse them?

ANSWER: A major local recycler for wood, organic yard waste and your juniper bushes is Rocky Top Resources, Inc.; see its Web site at It's a year-round program and could also take the river rock, used top soil, sod and fill dirt. El Paso County has a slash/mulch recycling program, but it doesn’t operate in the winter. Readers advised that if Willie and others want to give away landscaping materials they can also go through or post to craigslist:
