BC SPCA Shuswap Branch Recycling Centre

BC SPCA Shuswap Branch Recycling Centre

The BC SPCA Shuswap Branch is a non-profit organization whose mission is to protect and enhance the quality of life for domestic, farm and wildlife animals in British Columbia. 

Community Project: Recycling Centre

The Shuswap Branch requires funding for the construction of a Recycling Centre to provide adequate storage and sorting of bottle and recycling donations.

In 2016, their volunteers spent over 800 hours sorting and returning $12,000 in donated bottles and cans to the bottle depot! Currently they are using a tarp over part of a carport which does not allow for basic necessities for volunteers, such as heat and lighting, especially during winter months. Having a recycling centre on their property will reduce the amount of bottles and cans littering our community roadways and parks and the Shuswap Branch also recycles all of the plastic bags and boxes used to drop off donations.  A small building is necessary to keep the materials secured and contained in an organized manner.

The  BC SPCA Shuswap Branch has approximately 70 volunteers who are happy to volunteer their time and skills to help. Now they need the funding for supplies to get started!  Funds from the SASCU Canada 150 Grant above the cost of the Recycling Centre would be directed to animal medical and wellness needs at the Shuswap Branch.
