Q: Like with these conveyor belt trimmings, do you have drops or remnants from your production that would be a candidate for "repurposing"??  If yes, contact Damon @ 303.321.1471 or Email Damon>>

How We Work.  BEFORE"Do you have any interest in bags of salt?  The salt was delivered to one of our customers; the trailer had a leak in the roof.  Some of the bags got wet and the customer only took what he needed at that time.  Since this is food grade and kosher; I really don’t want to deal with selling it period.  For a tech grade application this would work well." - Greg  POSSIBLE AFTER"With winter coming on, you should contact street departments around the country who are stocking up on salt for winter driving maintenance." - Peter Allen in Minnesota

repurposedINBOX.  "We currently have a government contract for the recycling of materials and we were recently asked about the recycling of bullet proof vests. There are some restrictions so we would have to let them know the reuse/'repurpose'.  Kevlar anything is covered by the Patriot Act so it can't leave the country in any form without approval.  We are looking into options available.  In the past they would go waste to energy incineration." - Brian

Your Ideas:  "I have a friend who sponsors bullet-proof vests for police dogs. Could this material be recycled into dog vests? They are rather pricey." - Martha Cather

"When we rebuilt our Police Station we used old vests to line the walls around the reception area. The glass at the receptionists window was bulletproof but the wall were not. This is an internal wall with no masonry. Placing the vests, inside the unfinished wall with phone books in between the vests. Then finish the wall." -Donald Duncan
