Methow Recycles has a new program that makes it free for clients of The Cove and Room One to recycle paper, cans, plastics and cardboard. People don’t need to sort these items, but can simply put them in one of the Eco-Bags they pick up at The Cove or Room One.
People can use the bags for any type of paper, magazines or cardboard; aluminum and tin cans; and plastic bottles and tubs (such as from yogurt). They don’t accept glass or plastic bags.
The items will be sorted with comingled recycling in Spokane and sold to buyers across the country.
Full Eco-Bags can be dropped off at The Cove, Hank’s Harvest Foods, or Methow Recycles.
Clients of The Cove and Room One can also get a $5 coupon for Methow Recycles’ ReMake Center and tool library.
The ReMake Center is a clearinghouse for building and household items. These are working items that have been donated for re-use. The ReMake Center doesn’t accept furniture, rugs, appliances or electronics.
People can check out the selection during opening hours of Methow Recycles (Thursdays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.). Currently the ReMake Center is open only during the warmer months. People looking for something in particular can call ahead to ask Methow Recycles to put it aside if available.
Methow Recycles also has a tool library, where people can borrow hand tools, larger tools such as table saws, and a Firewise tool kit. Tools can be borrowed for $5 per tool per week.
