The County of Boulder offers its residents tons of opportunities to be environmentally responsible, which is a very important to most.  With regular curbside pickups, recycling and compost receptacles all over the city, the Boulder recycling industry is not only efficient, but booming.  For residents who do not wish to pay for the curbside recycling or have additional items, including hazardous home waste, the Boulder County Recycling Center and Hazardous Material Management Facility will take pretty much everything you have, except electronics and furniture, for free!

Located off Arapahoe Avenue on 63rd Street, this facility prepares over 45,000 tons a year of recyclable materials for shipment to recycling mills all over the nation. If you are

While exploring all that Boulder has to offer, you are bound to get hungry. I don’t know about you, but if I’m hungry a bakery sign will always lure me in. Not sure where to go? I have done the dirty work for you, and I have narrowed it down to five must-see bakeries that are baking up unbeatable treats.

A cold morning may send you running into Breadworks, located at 2644 Broadway. With the brick oven sending warmth throughout this large bakery you won’t have the chills for long. The only problem you’ll have here is deciding what to order. Will it be a pear tart, a chocolate croissant, a carrot cake bar, or maybe a bread pudding muffin? (Better hurry, these sell out fast!)  Are you a bargain hunter? Be sure to pick up a bag of yesterday’s bread for a

Living in Colorado one of the most recognizable names in recycling, by far, is Eco-Cycle. From their big recycling trucks that the kids love so much, to their name proudly displayed on every trash and recycling bin around downtown, Eco-Cycle has helped elevate Boulder County and the rest of the Front Range to its current status as the eco-friendly capital of the U.S.  Further solidifying their reputation as the leader in the industry, Eco-Cycle has developed their Green Star School Program, which helps to facilitate responsible eco-friendly practices that significantly reduce local school’s carbon footprints.
 
Partnered with schools throughout Boulder County, Eco-Cycle has enabled 35 schools to move toward a Zero Waste philosophy when it comes to cafeteria

Boulder County real estate market has started the year a little slower than 2013 did. Through February/2014 single family homes sales are down 16.4% (296 vs. 354) and attached unit sales are down 9.5% (123 vs. 136) compared to the same timeframe for 2013. Overall the market is down 14.5%. Available inventory for single family homes was down 20% at the end of February/2014 compared to the end of February/2013 (752 vs. 939); fewer active listings would lead one to believe there would be fewer sales (Columbo 101). The Absorption Rate, for single family homes, at the end of February/2013 stood at 161 days. At the end of February/2014 that number was 150 days, which means properties are selling about 7% faster these days than they did at this time last

According to an article published by The Denver Post, institutional investors, that is non-lender buyers who have purchased 10 or more homes over the past 12 months, have set siege on the Denver real estate market over the last year.  These findings were based on stats they acquired from RealtyTrac. The statistics also indicate a 20.1 % higher rate of institutional investment home sales during January 2014 occurred over the previous year during the same time.  The news comes in contrast to a 22 month low as of January for institutional investment purchases across the nation.

The Denver Post further reported that Ron Throupe of the University of Denver's Daniels College of Business, said that several institutional entities, mostly those that consist
