It has been nine months since last year's floods cut a swath of destruction through Boulder County, but many people are still working to rebuild their homes and restore their properties.

After seeing an influx of customers who had just recently received post-flood building permits, Eco-Cycle and the Center for ReSource Conservation, both located in Boulder's Recycle Row, 6400 Arapahoe Ave., are offering a number of benefits later this month to people who are still rebuilding.

"A lot of people are still trying to get their lives back together," said Marti Matsch, a spokeswoman for Eco-Cycle. "We want them to know that we're here for them, and we haven't forgotten them."

Both organizations are offering 30 percent discounts on certain products and services from June 16 to 30. The discounts apply to anyone rebuilding after the flood.

ReSource sells everything from kitchen cabinets to windows and doors to PVC pipe to appliances.

Spokeswoman Anne Tengler said ReSource keeps these items out of the landfill and available at low prices to people doing home remodeling and repairs.

Tengler said ReSource and Eco-Cycle don't have future outreach efforts planned, but they expect to have additional offers later in the year.

"Everyone is on a different schedule," she said. "Some people who were totally devastated might not be ready to take advantage of this, but a lot of people are coming in."

The discount does not apply to lumber or items in the showroom.

ReSource also is offering a free one-year membership in its tool library, which usually costs $25.

Members can rent tools, from rototillers to tile saws, for lower fees than at retail stores.

Matsch said the costs can really add up for people who are rebuilding, and the two organizations want to help reduce the burden.

At CHaRM, Eco-Cycle's Center for Hard-to-Recycle Materials, people affected by the flood will get a 30 percent discount on recycling fees for items like electronics that require special treatment. The $3 facility fee is also waived for the second half of June.

Eco-Cycle is also offering a 30 percent discount on Microbe Brew, a product made from worm castings that, in combination with compost or mulch, helps restore the microbial environment in yards where the topsoil was washed away in the flood and supports new seed growth.
