About The Baler Fund Drive

Clean Valley Recycling Needs Your Help!

A baler is at the heart of any recycling center. It compacts paper, cardboard,
plastics, and aluminum into tight bales for shipping.
When CVR began operating in 2013, we purchased a used baler with a state
grant and donations. After 16 years of baling millions of pounds of
recyclables, the used baler became unreliable and unrepairable.

We had no choice but to replace our worn-out baler for $116,000. We have
already raised $66,000 through grants and savings. We need your help to
raise the remaining $50,000.

Today, we are asking for donations to help us pay for a new baler.
Donations of $10, $20, $50, or $100 will go a long way towards reaching our
$50,000 goal. A person has even given $600! THANK YOU!
Consider making your gift a recurring monthly or annual donation to help us reach our goal!
