Although no new donated warehouse has been found. Mr Pearce has graciously given us a temporary reprieve until a new facility is found.
Our current donated warehouse was geneously donated since August 2016. Their business has expanded and they are in need of our donated space ASAP.
We will begin accepting correctly separated polypropylene and polyethylene again next week. Please review the website for updated grade separation requirements as we will NOT be accepting any that are not done correctly. Please allow sufficient time to have your's checked for grade separation compliance before being dropped off as there can be a waiting line. We are also asking for the special shipping boxes we use to be donated. See the "Wish List" tab for exact box information available for purchase at most Home Depots. This is the only boxes we use.
NON-LOCAL PARTICIPATION WILL NOT BE AFFECTED BY THIS MOVE AND WILL CONTINUE AS BEFORE as it is not affected by our storage and supports us monitarily.
The non-local process has been very successful across the country.
We will continue with our primary mission to educate the public on how to recycle correctly.
We will continue our secondary mission to provide the free wheelchairs as long as funds allow for purchasing new, and refurbishing donated wheelchairs.
Go Fund Me and PayPal Donation links are not available on the Mobile App. Please use computer to access. Thank you.
The goal of our non-profit organization is to educate the public on how to identify and recycle correctly and to provide wheelchairs to the physically-challenged under the age of 21 in the USA.
Through recycling education, we raise money to provide wheelchairs for disabled under the age of 21 in the USA. This also has an environmental benefit as discarded polypropylene and polyethylene caps/lids are put in our landfills or incinerated if not recycled. The value of the plastic is small but the education is priceless!
The value is ALL in the EDUCATION!
CAPS MUST BE SEPARATED BY GRADE OR THEY CANNOT BE ACCEPTED!
They can be sold to companies using recycled "post-consumer" plastic to create new products such as composite decking, janitorial supplies, shipping pallets, park benches, paint cans, automotive interiors, and many other items.
If not local to Palm Beach County, Florida, please contact your local recycling center to "take" your polyproplene and polyethylene in exchange for a tax deductible donation made payable to Caps Of Love charity BEFORE YOU BEGIN. Their grade separation process may differ from mine.
"Caps Of Love" does not discriminate or support on the basis of race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, national origin, or physical or developmental disability.
Have you ever thought about how much you could change things just by not throwing out your plastic caps?
Welcome to Caps Of Love: Helping the disabled
The charity mission is an ongoinge ducation on how to identify and recycle 3 grades of plastic caps. Speaking to local organizations, schools, churches, and clubs to increase awareness of the importance of correct recycling and how to participate in the charity.
Posted upcoming volunteer participation dates/times are updated every Sunday evening on the website under "weekly drop off /volunteering" as the volume always exceeds the capacity to process. Volunteers will be asked to help prepare the caps for shipping.
Community Service hours are given to anyone who assists me at my facility during volunteering hours.
