Clean Valley Recycling Members,
Thank you for all the support we have received from you, our members, over these past years.
Clean Valley Recycling (CVR) is a grass-roots nonprofit organization, working to protect our environment for future generations. Whether you contribute through volunteering with operations, monetary donation or both, the help is invaluable.
Over the past year, Clean Valley Recyclers have continued to grow the business – and the amount of materials diverted from the landfill keeps increasing:
In 2014, we diverted 313 tons; in 2015, 393 tons; in 2016, 512 tons; and in 2017, over 540 tons!
Our mission is to keep increasing this number!
To make recycling more convenient for busy folks, we have added curbside recycling. We have over 175 curbside customers and many of these customers are new to recycling! Also this past year we received grant money from the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment to expand our operations with recycling bins and a skidsteer for material handling. We are thankful for their support!
Our member support makes a real difference to us as we operate on a shoestring budget. Every little bit helps, be it monetary donation or giving valuable time. In the last year CVR members have provided maintenance on our forklift and baler, helped with a landfill waste audit, collected, sorted and baled recyclables, prepared recycling bags for our customers, etc. In addition to volunteers, CVR is happy to have six employees that keep operations running. We make a significant contribution to the local economy and we are proud to provide these jobs.
- Expanding our curbside program
- Installing energy efficiencies for our warehouse in Swink
- Adding “architectural salvage” for folks to be able to purchase used construction materials for “do it yourself” projects.
As membership is an annual commitment, we are asking you to renew yours over this next cycle. Look over the different levels of membership to choose what works for you & your family. Clean Valley Recycling is a 501c3 nonprofit, charitable organization and all donations are tax-exempt.
Thank you for your continuing support!
