DENVER — Small businesses in Denver’s River North community now have a new way to recycle materials they’d like to dispose of.
With the help of a state grant, Great Divide Brewing Company was able to create and launch a community recycling program. The grant was worth $16,000.
“So with that we were able to purchase two [recycling] balers and a pallet scale,” said Maureen Cherrett, Marketing Project Manager with Great Divide.
When Great Divide received the grant, it became a ‘recycler’ in the state of Colorado. It also decided to open its new tools to the RiNo (River North Community).
“With all of these new businesses [in RiNo], a lot of them small manufacturers like us, we realized if we were having this issue many more were likely having the same problem,” Cherrett explained.
