BRING Recycling Project Almost Complete

EUGENE, Ore. — BRING Recycling is almost done with its 12-year effort to finish the Planet Improvement Center.

The last phase includes cementing the back lot to make it wheelchair accessible.

The nonprofit still needs to raise about $430,000 to finish the project. Its managers say funding has helped them handle environmental waste.

“We need to pave to make the site fully accessible. Right now only two-thirds of the site is accessible to people. We need an enclosure for our trash and recycling dumpsters, which is required by code. And we will build a second bioswale, so 100 percent of our storm water will be treated right here in our own bioswales,” said Sonja Snyder, BRING Development Director.

The organization hopes to raise the money and break ground in fall 2014.
