BEFORE: These are entry mats that have been taken out of service by the big rental companies.  They may have a small stain, a tear, etc.  For whatever reason, they aren't good enough to go into a bank, retail store, etc.  But, they still have lots of "repurpose" life left in them.  possibleAFTER: "Just a suggestion on the mats you purchased from me. I'm at a carnival and they have hundreds of the old entry mats like you have covering all the wires going from the generators to the amusement rides." - Rich Kramer in Ohio

Our Story.  BEFORE:  A project manager with Mortenson Construction, one of the largest contractors in America, referred us to their demolition subcontractor inDenver who was removing steel bar joists.  The PM thought it would be sad to see these perfectly re-usable structural members simply melted down by a metal recycler.  Sal, we appreciate your referral, and your recognition that re-use is always a better play for the environment than recycling.  AFTER: We just shipped out loads of the joists to as far away as Chicago and Cleveland.  All the joists found a higher and better use than metal recycling! 

Q:  Like Sal, do you have materials you're sending to a recycler that would have a higher/better use if they were "repurposed"?  If yes, call Damon @ 303.478.6193 or Email Damon>>
