GO Recycle again provided services at the Oct 19-21 Fall Okanogan Family Faire


GO would like to thank all the Volunteers for their efforts in setup, bin collection, sorting faire recycling, trash filtering, and post-faire mooping (MOOP=Matter Out Of Place/ micro-trash cleanup.)

By the Saturday after the Faire we were all cleared up, except for a load of glass that needs to be taken to the dump. (We could still use a few hearty souls for some lifting of trash bags onto truck for the dump. Email info@greenokanogan.org or leave a mssg at 486-0674 if you can help :-)

We did a little inaccurate postering regarding glass (some old "What We Take" flyers were used from a few years ago when we still recycled glass and we didn't realize it.) That, in combination with some folks simply leaving their trash full of glass behind instead of packing it out (which is the Barter Faire way), left us some extra, heavy work. Bygones--all in all it was a fun and chill Faire. Thanks again to those who worked with GO. Looking forward to a Spring Faire now!


Did you see 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. Our rockstar volunteer board and GO operations manager Steve all showed up, along with Sunny Lannigan, and they got it done, so BIG THANKS from the rest of us recyclers.

GO Tidbits...
                              

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…

the GO Again Thrift Store continues to do well, helping us make our mortgage and shoppers to find deals to help their budget.

We provided recycling bins at the Garlic Festival in History Park and the Fire Camp on Rodeo Rd in August...fixed a stuck lock on the the Dinner Table Foundation's "Harvest Node" refrigerator unit that is used to store produce for food bank programs and has been living behind the GO office since April…. See a few pics here.



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

Ooh-- and 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.
We hope to see you soon!
