As a nonprofit organization, Sedona Recycles belongs to YOU!
We serve you by collecting and processing your recyclables, we educate the public about waste reduction, reuse, and recycling every day, and we work to positively impact the planet for all of us.
The world is a tumultuous place and, as many of you have surely heard, the past year has been a very difficult one for recycling. Recyclers across the United States are finding themselves in the terrible position of having to throw away materials because they no longer have a market for selling their single-stream recyclables. Sedona Recycles has never had to do this because we have always collected our recyclables in multiple streams and sent those materials to mills right here in the U.S.
For the past 29 years, Sedona Recycles has stayed true to our vision of educating the public about the Three R’s and providing a source for real recycling. This hasn’t always been easy, and right now it seems harder than ever. Each day we continue to do our best to help our environment and serve our community. But the public often thinks of us differently than other nonprofits because we sell recyclable materials as part of our operation. Although sales are a necessary part of our work, we cannot rely on this fluctuating income. Rather, we rely on support from local governments and from community members like you.
Our organization would not survive without donations from those of you who believe in recycling and the value of our hard work. Simply stated, we cannot grow and thrive as a community organization if we subsist solely on material sales. The financial support of our community and those who believe in recycling is what keeps Sedona Recycles running day to day.
As we embark on our annual 90 Gifts in 90 Days fundraiser, we hope that you will see the tremendous value that Sedona Recycles provides to the community and support our efforts with a financial gift. You – as recyclers and supporters – are the lifeblood of our operation. We absolutely couldn’t have the impact that we do without you.
We thank you in advance for your generosity and support!
