The Baler Fund Drive

The Baler Fund Drive

Great news – we have reached our fundraising goal to pay for our horizontal baler! Thank you to the many supporters who contributed to our baler fund drive. We would like to give special recognition to the National Park Foundation and Subaru of America for completing the fundraiser with a donation of $60,000. We are most grateful for their contribution!

A baler is at the heart of any recycling center. It compacts paper, cardboard,
plastics, and aluminum into tight bales for shipping. Our new baler is working great and it has allowed us to increase our tonnage every year. Last year we recycled a record 809 tons which equals approximately 40 semi loads of materials that would have otherwise ended up in the landfill.
