EUGENE, Ore. — It’s been 14 years since BRING Recycling opened in the Eugene-Springfield area, and it has just finished adding all the final touches to their facilities.
And, of course, BRING did it in a crafty way.
Executive Director Julie Daniel says the community has shopped for recycled materials at their facilities for years, so they wanted to set an example.
Daniel says they used an old roof as siding on the final building they’ve been working on, which they’ve tried to do as much as possible.
“Many of the buildings here are built partly with used materials. All the doors, all the windows, all the furnishings come from BRING, all the fans, much of the lighting. So, a lot of this place has been built with the materials that come through,” Daniel said.
Daniel says BRING is hosting a private party Thursday for all the donors, so they won’t be open.
