Many thanks to Okanogan Family Faire for a grant of $2581 for staffing at GO Recycle in 2017. :-)
-----------------------------

We've definitely been busy since the weather has warmed up and roads have begun to dry out. On Earth Day, April 22nd, we had 72 customers drop off recyclables.

So we can really use reliable volunteers to help out with the many facets of keeping our recycle center and thrift store humming. Jobs include baling of recyclables, office work, painting, shelf construction, and GO Again store organizing.

Whether it is one day a month or one day a week , your commitment will make a difference. We especially need help throughout the month of June when board member Doug Bovard will be away.
Call Carol at 556-2250 or GO Recycle at 486-0674 to volunteer.

Will Colson and Matt Sessler from Pacific Recycling in Spokane recently visited to see what we are doing and how we can work together. They were very supportive of our organization, and were really impressed by the great community involvement we've had getting our recycling center going.


Sunday May 28th we have scheduled a WORK PARTY at Green Okanogan, 3 Rodeo Road, to prepare for the concrete repaving which will happen early in June. We've worked it out so we will remain open regular hours Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday in spite of construction.

Have you noticed the cool T-SHIRTS and caps with the GO Recycle logo that staff and volunteers have been wearing? You can have one too! We're taking orders to print more. Tee shirts will cost $15 or $20 depending on design/the size of the logo and number of colors you choose...hats, jackets if people want them. Drop in at the center and ask. :-)

Trashion Fashion Show Fun
A great time was had by all at the GO Trashion Show on Saturday April 8th. The food was delicious, the outfits incredible, and the help unbeatable.

You can see photos of the event on our Facebook page. (You do not need to be a Facebook member to see our posts and pictures--just to comment there.)

Thanks to all who showed up to support our fundraiser (the auditorium at the CCC was at capacity) and celebrated the creativity of our community and the idea that trash can be re-purposed -- even into fashion!


Good to Know
A regular visitor to GO recently let us know her trash has been cut in half by recycling with us. :-) Let us know how it's working for you!
