Having great tools makes all the difference in the world.

Here are some resources we have used with our clients to make projects
more productive and ecologically responsible!

Hard to Recycle Materials

ECO Cycle/ CHARM (Center for Hard to Recycle Materials)

    • Fabric (larger than 12×12 inches)
    • Electronics (old cell phones, cords with no hope of finding a purpose again)
    • Obsolete books
    • Tired yoga mats (really!)

Conversion services

Minify Music
Leslie: 970-235-0959. Have a box of CDs you want to convert to your iphone? This amazing service comes to your house and copies CDs to a jump drive. No hourly charge. No service fee, simply $1.30/CD!

Mike’s Camera
(VHS tapes to DVD)  If you have a box of VHS tapes but not one VHS recorder in your home, it’s time to update these tapes to a DVD format. Mike’s camera charges an hourly rate (and won’t estimate how long a tape will take to covert as they vary dramatically…who knew?).  Worth it to have your wedding in a watchable format or those recordings of grandma.

Hauling and Disposal

Gone for Good

  • For $400, you can load a 14ft truck with stuff you want out of your life –recyclables, trash, and reusable items. Gone for good has a consignment shop and will sell items on Craig’s List, reducing your hauling cost by 30% of that estimated value. Very little goes to the landfill, they are green through and through- even mattresses!

College Hunks Hauling Junk

  • Members of NAPO-Colorado, CHHJ has come to my rescue many times.

Photo organizing

Julie Kessler will take your hard-copies of photos and scan, sort, and organize them for easy retrieval and viewing. What a service!

Kevin Byrne can take care of all your real estate needs. He is a top producer in the Boulder/Denver market and the love of my life.
