At the recent Star Partners Awards event, Blue Star Recyclers was thrilled to recognize two incredible people as our Employees of the Year.
Shane Hayden has been an all-star employee in Denver for many years now. Every day he shows an internal drive to not only accomplish the tasks given to him, but to go beyond and proactively seek out work undone. Simply put, Shane takes care of business.
Jane Blume is one of the most considerate and caring people you will ever meet. Since joining the Blue Star team in 2016 she generously takes on more responsibility to help us grow and thrive. Her teammates eagerly supported her selection as Employee of the Year.
