Buildings From Recycled Material: Cano’s CastlePosted by in Blog
Most people recycle by taking cans, bottles and papers to a local processing center.
Cano Espinoza recycles by building a castle out of used goods. When his neighbors started complaining about his pile of beer cans, Cano decided to do something unusual about the problem. He’s used over a million cans, plus recycled tires and hubcaps, to create a towering structure in Antonito, Colo.
Eventually, Cano plans to connect the castle to his house, but for now the castle exists just for visitors. Hiss can castle is located at the corner of East 10th Avenue and State Street. Visitors are welcome, but interior tours are not currently offered. Cano asks for donations from tourists who speak with him, but no admission is required.
