BOULDER, Colo. (Tribune News Service) — Boulder police said U.S. military officials are still inspecting an item found at EcoCycle in east Boulder on Wednesday, and the facility remains closed.

The item was dropped off by a woman Wednesday at EcoCycle when officials called in police.

Police initially called it a hazardous materials situation, but then called in an Army Explosive Ordnance Disposal unit when it was discovered the item appeared to be a military device.

Officials said the item was labeled "inert" but that they cannot assume it is safe at this time.

EcoCycle was evacuated Wednesday and remains closed today.
