The Southeast Kansas Recycling Center is a not-for-profit organization with the mission to give area recyclers a place to bring materials, as well as educate the community on recycling ♻ Not only does the Center incur costs to recycle some paper, but there are also labor costs and equipment maintenance costs; costs that are necessary to process and ship out the recyclables you bring us. We would like to thank the following for grants and funding that make Southeast Kansas Recycling possible; Kansas Department of Health and Environment, Crawford County, The City of Pittsburg, and Roll Off Service. Most of all we would like to thank you. Thanks for caring about the Earth enough to make a difference.
