Christmas Charities Year Round invited us to attend their annual Rag Tag Day this year to demonstrate their new baler and let us tour their facility on Jordan Lane. They started baling the rags about 2 months ago (March 2009) and they finished baling the 24th bale while we were there. The recycling plant will pay $2000 for 40 bales which they expect to deliver in the next few months.
CCYR also takes gently used clothing and all kinds of items for children including toys, games, and ever furniture. For more information about CCYR and their mission, please visit their web site at http://www.christmascharitiesyearround.org
We also got a nice mention in an article on al.com regarding Rag Tag Recycling Day.
