There is a growing awareness of increasing efforts to recycle… it is going on all around us:

The most notable home in Colorado built with recycled materials is Dennis Weavers “Earthship” near Ridgeway, Colorado. It is a beautiful, environmentally friendly, 10,000 square foot home made of used tires, aluminum cans and other recycled materials. It may be made of junk but it has been featured on Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, Home and Gardens, the Discovery Channel, and PBS. And… you can own “Earthship” for only $3,3 million dollars.

There are not many things that are not being recycled:

• Recycled paper products

• Recycled glass and metal products

• Salvage yards recycle car, truck and machinery parts

• Construction and Demolition Recycling Magazine recently reported that Habitat for Humanity had opened a used building materials outlet here in Denver.

• Perhaps you’ve noticed the sign on the front of the home being demolished on the corner of Sheridan and 72nd Avenue that reads… NO COPPER The intent is to deter anyone who might want to sneak in and strip the place of copper wiring for resale at the recyclers.

• Right here in Arvada, RMC (Recycled Material Company) is doing what they now call urban quarrying. They have taken the concrete and asphalt from the old Stapleton Airport site and are producing 5,000 tons of secondary aggregate every day. You can catch a glimpse of some of their work between Raulston Road and I-76 as you drive down Sheridan.

• Even our thrift stores and garage sales are ways people recycle.

Just as we have come to see that nearly anything and everything from broken glass, steel belted tires, aluminum cans, and concrete slabs as recyclable, God sees people as recyclable.
