Hey Pinecammers!

We just picked up the first barrel full of twine from Big R Conifer!

Thank you to all who are recycling.

We are also so grateful for our local businesses willing to host a collection bin.

I have a few more locations ready to accept clean baling twine and one coming soon:

Bailey Depot Feed
1 Delwood Dr.
Bailey, CO 80421
720-382-4182


Pine Country Feed
13581 S. Glen Dr.
Pine, CO 80470
303-838-5186


JL&B Feed
7040 Indiana St.
Arvada, CO 80007
303-422-2158

Coming soon, Cody's place in Morrison. Just as soon as we have an essential trip 'down the hill' we will bring a barrel to put by the gate. :)

Thanks so much.

Update 7/26/2020

I thought you all would like to see how much twine we have collected so far, which is not even all of it! We picked up two totes of twine from the Denver Zoo. In addition to what is in the photo, JL&B Feed has 4 barrels full of twine and our cattle rancher has a full tote/cage. After this picture was taken, another 4-H'er dropped off their collection which filled the first tote/cage and about 1/3 of the tote/cage behind it.

We will plan a day to haul the twine up to Johnstown sometime after our "Fair" the first week of August. Thank you all for your help and support getting this recycling program going!

Can you take "sunburned" twine, like shredded in the middle - or semi intact? I've got twine that's been hanging on a corral panel for years.

Hi, Warrior - I have reached out to Laura at Twine Recycling. I will get back to you as soon as she replies.

_____

The answer is YES!


Yes twine is a fairly low-grade material in the first place, the pellets made from recycled twine are also low grade. So there are not many quality restrictions. Good question!

Laura

Awesome, no more sunburned useless-around-the-ranch twine! Next trip to a feed store!

Semi-related, does anybody know anybody who will recycle mixed materials feed bags???

I asked Laura about recycling feed bags when she came to talk to the 4-H club. She said that is something they hope to expand to do in the future. She just asked me for input and I will pass along your question to her to show there is growing interest in having this option!

Can one recycle baling twine at Big R in Evergreen. Just saying, lots of small farms, et all in the area. I rarely travel to BR Conifer!
