Military device prompts evacuation at Boulder recycling center

Police said Wednesday morning that a woman had brought the item to EcoCycle for disposal.

BOULDER, Colo. — Police said the U.S. military will evaluate a device that was taken to a recycling center in Boulder Wednesday. 

The Boulder Police Department (BPD) tweeted Wednesday morning that a woman had brought an item to Eco-Cycle, located on 63rd Street near Arapahoe Avenue, for disposal. 

Police said they evacuated the business as a precaution and treated the matter as a hazmat situation, but added there was no threat to public safety.

BPD later said the item appeared to be a U.S. military device and that members of multiple branches of the military were on their way to evaluate it. 

Eco-Cycle remains closed, police said, and they’re asking people to avoid the area. 

This is a developing situation. 9NEWS will provide more information as it becomes available.
