RSVP Programs

Recycling Activities

Our environmentally concerned RSVP members are involved with several recycling projects.

  1. Community Recycling Centers-- located downtown at 130 West Cerro Gordo Street. The center is open Thursday afternoons and Friday and Saturday mornings. Members of the community are invited to bring in their aluminum cans and are paid the current market price. Recycling cans may also provide an fund-raising activity for your organization.
  2. In cooperation with Macon County Solid Waste Management, volunteers collect recyclable paper at various schools. Through our efforts these environmentally viable projects not only keep our landfills uncluttered they are also made into exciting, everyday products.

Funds raised from the Community Recycling Centers benefit Dove's Programs.
