PRo KANSAS RECYCLING WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL AT LEAST APRIL 21ST.

Watch this web site and our Facebook page for updates.  If BUSINESSES need to bring materials, or if individuals have large loads (pickup truck load / trailer load which cannot be stored somewhere) our staff will be available at least part of the time.  Call 269-1359 to arrange a delivery time. 

We will also take this time to finish the more expensive and complicated repair on the large baler.  Your generous donations made this possible.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!  WE WILL SEE YOU ALL IN A FEW WEEKS.

You Can Donate Directly to PRo Kansas Recycling Center

PRo Kansas Recycling Center is the region’s largest and most comprehensive free non-profit recycling facility and has grown in importance to the community over time. In the past year, as more than a half dozen recycling centers in the region have closed their doors, PRo Kansas has seen an increasing number of people from those communities come to use the facility as well. Currently, over 2000 customers visit the Center every month.

Despite this growth, the Center faces challenges because of major changes in the recycling market.  In previous years, income from the sale of recycled materials covered all Center expenses. But China’s exit from much of the recycling market and the current lack of capacity in the U.S. have depressed prices for recycled materials by 50% to 90%.

A History of Accomplishments and Stewardship

PRo Kansas was chartered as a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation in 2002, with a mission of providing both recycling services and public education.  The facility offers a place to recycle a broader range of materials (18 categories) and results in more complete recycling than single stream. 

In its 15-year history, PRo Kansas has kept 22 million pounds of recycling out of landfills. Paper recycling alone has saved nearly 50 million gallons of water, 80,000 barrels of oil and 120,000 trees. Over 2,000 individuals, families and businesses a month come to the recycling center, and the numbers continue to grow.

PRo Kansas also has an extensive Education Program that reaches 3,000 children and adults every year.  Since inception, more than 20,000 school children and scouts have learned about recycling through PRo Kansas.

For more information, visit our website, Facebook page, or facility (open Tues. and Thurs. 1- 4p, Sat. 9 -3p) or email operations@prokansasrecycling.org.   Donations and volunteers are always welcome. All donations are tax-deductible.
