Help Keep GO Going Further

GO Recycle has been up and running 3 days every week since July 2015, recycling over One and a Half Million Pounds to date. During this time we've asked for your support to help get equipment needed for recycling, electrical and insulation upgrades to our main building, a down payment to purchase our home at 3 Rodeo Road in Tonasket, concrete work in the yard so the forklifts and your cars can safely run), and to build a recycling intake shelter and buy a storage pod for mixed paper.

Financially 2021 was a very good year for Green Okanogan. Our net income was over twice what we expected! Sales from the Go Again Thrft Store brought in 43% of our total income, thanks to your donations of reusable items and the hard work of volunteers. Donations and membership dues contributed 30% of our gross income, while sales of recyclables grossed 18%. Grants contributed another 9% to our income. The Store is paying the regular bills, not GO Recycle. Recycling markets have been depressed world-wide for several years now and, while we break even, keeping 800 tons out of the landfill is not yet profitable enough to pay for further infractructure.

As we process an ever increasing amount of product (good) we've run out of clean, dry storage space for cardboard bales and e-cycling waiting to be trucked to market (not so good.) Remember, DRY recycling is ESSENTIAL. Wet, or water damaged/moldy recycling ends up as landfill. We are fund raising now to build a 50x50 foot steel building, estimated to cost $75,000 (labor, materials, permits, concrete pad work for under building.)


This picture, taken in good weather, really shows how badly we need the storage facility to hold bales of recyclables until we can truck them to Wenatchee or other markets. Imagine what this constant tarping process looks (and feels) like in freezing weather and snow.

Another simple way to help out is the Amazon Smile program where Amazon donates .5% of items purchased to non-profits--like Green Okanogan. It is simple to use. Just add "smile dot" before "amazon dot com" and pick Green Okanogan as your designated charity.



It's exactly the same as shopping regular Amazon (the prices are the same, if you have an account you sign in the same and have all your history there) but Amazon kicks in half-of-one-percent of the bill. Maybe not a fortune, but if you're shopping there anyway, why not have some of A's profits go to GO? Tell your family and friends outside the area, too! send them to smile.amazon.com/ch/27-2613885

Even easier than remembering to add "smile" to the address--try these browser extension that automatically change any amazon URL you might click to "smile.amazon.com" There's Smile Redirect for Firefox users and Smile Always extension for Chrome
