  Recyclers in the Rocky Mountain West will soon have the opportunity to link up by computer. RecycleNet, an electronic bulletin board based in Colorado, plans to expand services this summer to Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico, thanks to a $10,000 federal grant. The service encourages those in hands-on, day-to-day recycling programs to share information and resources, says RecycleNet coordinator Kari Anderson. To help markets grow for recyclable materials, the bulletin board lists nationwide programs for exchanging materials and provides a database of companies that buy recyclable materials and supply equipment. RecycleNet includes a classified section and an e-mail message center. Colorado recyclers may connect to RecycleNet via modem direct dial 303/620-4096. Use standard settings: 8 databits, 1 stopbit, no parity. For out-of-state phone numbers or more information, contact Kari Anderson at the Colorado Office of Energy Conservation, 303/620-4292.
