Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose
Wednesday, January 28, 2009
Meet Joan. She's the muscle behind the Colfax County Recycling Facility. She helps all of us to be better stewards of what we've been given. That is at least ---of what we've been given and then we used and then were ready to toss carelessly away---But, in steps Joan Mejstrik and the Keep Schuyler Beautiful Foundation and now we have a very clean, nice place to drop off all those items that once were headed to the landfill. Now, they can be recycled, reused, and repurposed!
I love vintage items and antiques and am ESPECIALLY drawn to what is old and rusty and in poor condition because I see new uses for it, and I see personality in it's age and rust. Maybe that is why I think our recycling center is so neat. I see art out there, actually. The colors of all the old packaging---the lines created when it's all tightly bundled together---
