RecyclingWorks has been working with United Tool & Machine & Gaynor Industries to improve their recycling program and identify outlets for materials used in their manufacturing process. These manufacturing materials include scraps of neoprene and aramid fiber. RecyclingWorks connected United Tool & Machine with Extras for Creative Reuse, a store in Peabody that provides low and no cost materials to artists and educators for creative arts programs. United Tool & Machine is joining the many manufacturers that donate “industrial byproduct thingamajigs” to the store for reuse.
You can learn more about Extras for Creative Reuse at the ReuseConex Conference later this month, where they will be participating in a panel on creative reuse.
