GO Got a Facelift 


We spruced up the place at 3 Rodeo Road on September 5th with a new coat of clean, bright, white paint on the building exterior.

We didn't really get any new hands on deck for the job, but our rockstar volunteer board and GO operations manager Steve all showed up, along with Sunny Lannigan (hard to know if he came with board secretary Carol Lannigan or just because he volunteers lots of times for lots of groups in the community :-) and they got it done, so BIG THANKS from the rest of us recyclers.

You will still be able to find the place, but go ahead and have a peek here on our Facebook page so you will be prepared to see a white building instead of a an old brownish-red one!




Here's a link to our ever popular pics from our event in April, where 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.  See photos on our Facebook page

Also in April, the Dinner Table Foundation's "Harvest Node" arrived in GO's yard, and was set up behind the office. It's a large, refrigerated shipping container that is used to distribute fresh, local produce to various food programs throughout Okanogan County. It nice to be able to share our big yard with a project like this.  See a few pics here.

GO Updates...
                              

We’ve been keepin’ on keepin’ on at GO without anything major to report…the June Membership Drive went well (never too late to renew or join if you haven’t).… we’re selling the GO logo tote bags that were a freebie with June membership (and t-shirts—we have GO tees for sale in the office, not online)…and we’re all enjoying driving and moving big containers on the smooth concrete in the yard after all it took to get that project done…

small repairs come up—brake wiring on the truck was fixed, and it needs new batteries…a valve on a frost free water pipe needs to be replaced… we could use another pallet jack…and the Annex needs organizing if anyone has time…

operations manager Steve will just have taken a load of recyclables to Wenatchee and one to Spokane around the time you’re reading this… and the GO Again Thrift Store continues to do well, helping us make our mortgage and shoppers to find deals to help their budget.

What else? We provided recycling bins at the Garlic Festival in History Park last week, and we have 5 baskets on the Tonasket rodeo site for the Fire Camp’s needs...fixed a stuck lock on the Harvest Node refrigerator unit that is used to store produce for food bank programs and lives in our yard…

Ooh-- please remember to take home anything you might accidentally bring that does not recycle when you visit GO Recycling—we don’t provide trash service. You can always see/download/print the list at our website under the Recycling link.  
Looking forward
to seeing you soon!
