The last time I checked in, the world was starting to feel really scary. It was the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic and there were so many unknowns in our recycling world that it really had us upside down for a little bit. Thankfully, we have managed to carefully abide by all social distancing rules, stay healthy, keep recycling trucks running routes and our warehouse open for drop offs of electronics and papers to shred all throughout this pandemic.
In May we were able to secure a PPP loan which allowed us to keep all our employees working to provide recycling services to our customers who were able to remain open and the houses that are producing more recycling than ever each week! It was such a blessing to have some aid that went to my team.
Speaking of aid, we would like to give a huge shout-out to Boulder County where we were also lucky enough to obtain grant funding which immediately went into keeping our fleet running. (May was an extremely expensive month because we had to replace a truck engine in Montana, our 20-yard trash style truck, that collects single-stream recycling) Whew. It’s been a ride for sure, the one I named the Covid-Coaster and it’s not over yet.
We are continuing to wear masks around customers at all times. Our truck cabs are washed down before each use and personal protective equipment is carefully managed. The warehouse is cleaned each morning, afternoon and night. Anything a customer could touch at the warehouse is sanitized daily. It’s safe to come see us and shred documents or clean out your garage or office. This is the best time to unclutter and create sanity in your living/working space!
Our message is that we are here for YOU, our amazing customers from all over the front range residentially and commercially. Our warehouse is open from 9:00am to 4:30pm Monday through Friday. Come see us or call for a pickup. Please continue to stay safe.. we will all get through this together, one day at a time, carefully and with our continued passion to keep everything OUT of the landfill; We still Make Recycling Easy!
