Welcome to Green Okanogan

 
GO Recycle and GO Again Thrift: Open Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays 10-4
We Hope You Renewed In June

We had over 6,700 customer visits last year. GO continues to grow--and we still need your help.

Our challenge this year is the collapse of the world recycling market. Prices for most materials have plummeted (some to z.e.r.o.), but we can't stop our good work. 

If you renewed in June--thank you! If you haven't joined or renewed, it's never too late to do so. Your donation buys you a place to take your recyclables and thrift store items, and membership in a growing community of recyclers who take care of the earth.

Pick your level of support: 
  • Living Lightly/Student/Senior $15.00
  • Individual $25.00
  • Family $50.00
  • Small Business $50.00
  • Large Business $100.00
  • Donor $250.00
  • Major Donor $500.00
  • Lifetime Member $1,000.00
  • Sustaining Member ($10 per month)
Memberships can be:
  • Sent via PayPal at our website (securely use a credit card whether you have a PayPal account or not) 
  • Done at GO Recycle when we're open (T/Th/Sat 10-4) or
  •  Mail a check or money order to P.O. Box 604, Tonasket, WA 98855.  (Be sure to include your Name, Mailing Address, Phone#, Email, and Level of Support)
Thank YOU for keeping a non-profit recycling service viable in North Okanogan County

The materials we accept hasn't changed. Many ask, but we still can NOT recycle glass. Sorry, but you might take it to Methow Recycles in Twisp, or the Osoyoos Landfill just north of the border in BC.

As always, please bring only CLEAN recycling and thrift donations  Kindly rinse your plastics; and no wet, moldy, or mousie poopie thingies  please'n'thankyou.  :-)
 
Look for us at the Tonasket Farmer’s Market this season. We'll have a booth there with info about waste and recycling, and have beautiful reusable GO logo bags for for sale-- just $4.  The Market's open 2-6 pm every Thursday. Stop by, visit, and learn some incredible facts about TRASH. 
Trashion Fashion at Its Finest!  What a fun time we had celebrating Earth Day with all who attended our 3rd Annual Trashion Show on April 20th. The CCC's back room was filled, the run-way lit up, the music played, and our fabulous models took to the stage--all in the name of our wonderful Earth and Green Okanogan.
 
 
Thank you to all who helped at the Spring Barter Faire. It was a messy job, but clean up went well because of a few enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers.  Our MOOP team worked wonders on the land after all of the campers and vendors left.

Operations manager Jim McKinney has moved on since we last sent out an update. In light of the current market conditions we have decided not to hire at this time. Phil and Sandy (our trusty volunteers) are doing an amazing job of keeping up with the baling and hauling of product, and they are so appreciated--we could not do this without their help!

Our GO Again Thrift Store has a load of new items donated from an annual yard sale in Oroville. New building supplies and never been used sinks and plumbing items from a construction job that was never finished. ... We still don't take clothing donations in the thrift store, but Marcy collected a few dozen t-shirts and Susie made them in to shopping bags to be given away to  thrift store shoppers (while they last.)  We have great volunteer board members!

Speaking of our BOD, there is a BOARD SEAT open. If you are interested in helping GO Recycle, and have time to devote to an active organization, please let us know -- or attend a board meeting the second Tuesday of each month at 4pm. We’d love to enjoy your company.

We look forward to seeing you soon
