What's Going on at ORE [Blog]
As the Holiday season approaches fast the “to do” list grows: decorating the house, shopping for gifts, and preparing food (Lots of it!). Proportionately, the amount of waste generated during this time increases.
We are eager to receive your phone calls, visits at the ORE office, or e-mails to answer any questions you may have:

Last Sunday the ORE team gathered in Crested Butte to help the pre-school with a recycled art project. The message we wanted to relay to the kids was to recycle and reuse waste that they would normally throw away. We used plastic bottles, aluminum cans, bubble wrap, Cd's and more to create underwater paintings and pop-up art. We asked the kids what they thought recycling was and if they knew the proper ways of disposing certain things like technology. Believe it or not, most of the kids knew the answers to our questions.
