Once a month (usually on the second Sunday), as people bring recyclables to our collecting center in the parking lot, the Recycle Team sorts and loads items and transports them to the recycling yard to turn in for cash.
The mission is two-fold: to help our environment by keeping recyclable items out of landfills and to support those in need with the proceeds. In 2015, Circles Fresno took over recycling. All proceeds earned goes to Circles Fresno. Since it’s inception of recycling, the Recycling Ministry has raised over $10,000 for missions.
For information on materials collected, volunteering, or ideas for mission projects to support, contact Jo Polenz or Carol Van de Meer. The Recycle Team always needs pick-up trucks to transport the collected material.
