Opportunity Resources recycles, creates jobs

MISSOULA, Mont. — Opportunity Resources has opened an electronic waste recycling business that will collect various materials and metals from items like computers and small appliances.

The company will take the metals out of those items for recycling, and to keep from putting potentially hazardous materials in the ground at dumps and landfills.

Opportunity supports those with disabilities. With the opening of the electronic recycling business, it will be the only such facility in the state. It is working toward R2 certification, which is recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for responsible practices in recycling.

The business is based at 6900 Kestrel Drive, No. 14, and will eventually have 12-15 employees. Many of those hired will be people with disabilities.
