She then stops by the White Sulphur Springs area to pick up other people's recyclables. Bloomer collects recycling from about 75 businesses and just a few friends' homes.
Her business has bloomed by word of mouth, she said.
Bloomer's goal is to offer recycling services to residents sooner rather than later.
If she owned a bigger baler, she could recycle more than the 30,000 pounds of cardboard she currently saves from the landfill each month.
She also wants to make Second Chance Recycling and Renewal a "family-oriented" business.
Her sons, Charlie, 19, and William Gillepsie, 22, and stepson Christopher Pence, 19, as well as her longtime significant other, help handle the business daily. Her mother and father visit her home to give her a hand sometimes, too.
They help her put piles and piles of cardboard in the baler.
They place used car oil bottles on the "PVC pipe tree" Bloomer made that drains the oil into a bucket at the bottom of the "tree."
They collect, separate and put everything that is already divided into large piles in her yard into bags.
"It's too much for me to do alone," Bloomer said. "We don't think of it as work. Besides making a difference, it keeps us busy."
While her family has supported her recycling efforts, she wants other families to consider recycling as well.
"I want families to see by working together they can stay together. We need to take responsibility," Bloomer said. "I want people to stop and think about what's going on with all of this recycling and try to make a difference. Teach your children to think of others."
In the near future, Bloomer said she wants children to visit Second Chance Recycling and Renewal as a place to learn about recycling in an educational manner.
She wants to start composting and to build a worm farm so that children can "learn recycling with agriculture," she said.
"I'm not done yet. There are grants I can apply for. I'm doing pigs next," Bloomer said. "My goal is to be able to take care of those that want to recycle more."
