2018 Rummage FUNdrive and E-Waste Collection

In observance of Earth Day, the OAA is teaming up with recycling company, Savers, to recycle, reuse, and reduce unwanted items in your home. For every donation made, Savers will purchase 20 cents per pound for soft goods, 5 cents per pound for miscellaneous, and 5 cents per pound for books and media. (Damaged or incomplete items will NOT be accepted)

Our goal is to raise $1,000 which is a equivalent of 400 13-gallon bags!

We are also teaming up with All Green Recycling to collect and recycle electronic waste. (Various electronics will be accepted, but specifically TVs, monitors, laptops and tablets will earn OAA 12 cents per pound!)

Volunteers needed in the first two weeks of April to organize and bag items, and on April 14 to help with loading the truck. Service hours are available for students. Please click here to sign up: https://goo.gl/forms/vEqznleNK0msXYVR2
