Recycling Fundraiser

WHO

can participate in this fundraiser?

Everyone can participate in this fundraiser! Youth groups, school classrooms, individual households, businesses, etc. Wherever the recyclable items are used they can be collected (with permission).

WHAT

items can be recycled?

The following items can be recycled.

All packaging must be clean (no food remnants) and dry.

  • Any brand of food squeeze pouches, including the cap (GoGoSqueez, Happy Tots, Little Journey, Plum, etc.)
  • Entenmann’s Little Bites pouches
  • Any brand of toothpaste and toothbrush, including outer packaging
  • Brita brand products (packing and filters)
  • Schwarzkopf hair care products (aerosol cans, paper packaging, hair care tubes, hair color packaging)

WHERE

do we bring the items?

Here is our current list of drop off locations:

  • Barnabas Ministries – 4670 Pine Street, Hamilton – drop off to staff or in gray bin outside the office
  • 169 Great Northern Lane, Holland, 49424 – drop off in large bins on the front porch

WHEN

is the fundraiser?

All the time!

We are promoting this fundraiser during the month of March, but items can be recycled all year. Please check our list of drop off locations as they are subject to change.

WHY

participate in this fundraiser?

 

  1. These items are not able to be recycled in curbside recycling and this program helps keep recyclable items out of the landfill
  2. Terracycle will donate funds to Barnabas Ministries for every pound of items shipped

HOW

does Barnabas receive funds?

 

When you drop off your clean and dry items, we will send them to Terracycle. For every pound of recyclable items we send in, Terracycle will donate $1 to Barnabas Ministries.
