Trashion 2018 a Success!  
More than 100 trashionistas came to Green Okanogan's Earth Day Trashion Show, held at the Community Cultural Center of Tonasket on April 21st. The crowd was treated to passion in recycled fashion as 21 models, age 4 to 95, strutted their stuff on the C-C-C-Catwalk.

Donations and proceeds from the Trashion Show will now go into an "Operations & Improvements Fund"  for a list of smaller, but all necessary, things such as paint and lighting (which are next on the agenda.)

Please continue to support Green Okanogan by bringing us your recycling, by volunteering at GO Recycle and the GO Again Thrift Store, and by becoming a member or renewing your membership.  :-)
 
We look forward to seeing you at the show, and at 3 Rodeo Road soon! 

Tuesday hours are now 10-4, same as Thursdays and Saturdays, all year long.

GO Got a Truck!  
We put out a call in January for our Equipment Fund, and some generous donors helped us to get a pre-owned Dodge Ram 3500 --1 ton, 6-speed diesel, dually, with a custom 12-foot flatbed.  It's color is grey, but GO operations manager Steve Anderson says it's a sunny ride! (see a couple pics of it here)

He drove the new rig to Wenatchee last week with over 7,000 pounds of paper and plastics (12 gaylord containers of mixed paper= 6,000 lbs, and 2 compressed bales of #1 and #2 plastics = over 1000 lbs. Heavy, man!)

Steve said the Dodge handled great, and can safely carry twice the load our old Ford 3/4 ton gas guzzler could, while using half the fuel.  That means the cost of transporting recycling is now a little over 1/4 of what it was (less fuel, but diesel is a little more per gallon....) Yay!  We were barely breaking even before, AND it's always nice to make the drive without worrying about breaking down.

So, that's the electric and baler fixed now, the nice new concrete yard, in our own permanent facility, that's insulated, with a big truck that runs--wow, things are GOing along more smoothly than ever!
Green Okanogan has diverted 489,812 pounds (or 244.906 tons) of material from local landfills and burn piles, and has taken them to be made into useful products since opening for regular hours at our current location in July 2015. (see more)
