Our Mission

Recycling Services understands the critical need to educate the public and to create a market for recycled products. Our vision is to become a community-based, self-contained recycling center. RSI has made a moral decision to provide an educational program that is essential to life itself. We strive to provide a center where recycling will create new products from old ones, and to preserve the rich heritage of the earth for future generations through other projects including organic farming, renewable resources and land preservation.

News: Summer 2014

The challenges continue. The shift this year to cut out Tuesday hours and just have Saturdays was a hard one. I also discovered after all these years how little most of you know of our operation. We have made a list of all our expenses to better show how all funds get spent. See below. While we are a non profit, we do have a paid staff. We still have a handfull of dedicated volunteers. (Let me know if you'd like to be added.) But most all the work is done by our staff of employees. We also have insurance, a vehicle, electric, phone, and more. Most all our insurance comes due in July--often when collection days are the slowest. The good news is by cutting out Tuesday, we are saving quite a bit in labor while making Saturday much more productive. I'm hoping to clear out more materials in the next few months and then add several new features to our collection day. Another idea being considered is one Tuesday a month, which could start again next year. Please let me know your thoughts. We need to rebuild our board of directors and find workshop space to keep me and projects moving along. Thanks if you've already sent support this year. More is always welcome.

Thanks for your continued interest and support.
