Best Recycling Service (2012)
Operation ReScrap caters to Front Range crafters, encouraging them to "de-stash" their overflowing supply boxes by sharing with others of the same ilk. To that end, ReScrap periodically hosts one-day Stash Bash events — kind of a crafters' garage sale — where you can either rent a table to sell or consign your overflow for a fee (the next one is at Zappy Dots Boutique, Operation ReScrap's Longmont craft store/home base, on April 28); this summer, a more comprehensive Operation ReScrap event is planned. Both concepts offer an opportunity to pull those dusty bins full of ribbons, fabric, yarn, buttons and needles out from under the bed, get organized by deciding what you really need and what's just there filling space, then get rid of the discards. In this, the age of rescrapping, recycling, upcycling and repurposing, it's an idea whose time has come.
