EUGENE, Ore. — A local recycling center rewarded its volunteers with a new work space.
The recently renovated dismantling center at Next Step Recycling opened up last week.
Organizers say so far this year, 300 people donated 6,500 hours. The center says the volunteers are key to fulfilling its mission of reducing the community’s carbon footprint.
“We’re redirecting a tremendous amount from the landfill. In fact, last year it was over two million pounds that was kept out of the short mountain landfill by recycling,” said John Barnum, Next Step Executive Director.
