  1. we are working so hard daily to keep the front of the recycling center tidy. We need the help of a handiman who can put up book shelves, light plumbing, etc. ANYONE willing to help????
  2. We are in the process of creating security for the recycling center. We have 2 camera, but, need a computer to install wifi. Thanks to anyone who could help!
  3. This Saturday we completed a deep cleaning with the help of Hector Espana and the staff of Manix restaurant. Mil Gracias!!!! I am now looking for a kitchen faucet. I f anyone has one they could donate, please PM me. Thanks to all who has helped!!!
  4. We have been looking for a truck for the Recycling Center. Every truck we look at my mechanic discovers that the vehicle was doctored to cover real risks.
  5. How can you get clear title when some of it is allegedly built on federal property?
  6. The volunteers at the Recycling Center would love?
  7. Things are proceeding well. We have started a relationship with a direct recycler in Guadalajara. We have made great strides cleaning up the place. The chairs, library stools, fans, hoses and trash can provided by donors have improved our efficiency and made working so hard less taxing and cleaner for our volunteers. We now have our sorting dumpsters deployed for the public to self sort: cans (rinsed), aluminum(crushed if possible), plastic (rinsed #s1,2,5 ONLY please), tetrapaks (rinsed/flattened/cap on), magazines/ newspapers, and miscellaneous paper. We still need donations i.e. two tractor trailer loads of cardboard, one of our most valuable recyclables, will not pay our one employee for a month. We still need large trash cans, barrels, a wheel barrow, a mini frig, a small ATV, a cart, ... We are still looking for a decent truck and will need donations for that which would be in the name of the nonprofit AC. Please we are unable to handle general garbage, yard waste and berry containers. These take up a lot of time and take us away from our intended purpose. We don't have the storage space for them either. Again thanks to all who are recycling, those who sort their recycling and especially our donors!
  8. Those supporting the drive to recycle are truly appreciated. Please rinse your recycling. A good rule of thumb is if you wouldn't want to handle it again, our volunteers and the recyclers won't either. If possible, crush aluminum cans. If possible separate glass into clear, brown / blue, and green With tetrapaks (liquid cartons) pull up top and bottom ears, rinse, crush and put cap on. Plastice please crush and put caps on, if you can. We take cardboard and papers, but not stained pizza boxes. If the pizza box top is clean, we can recycle it. Thank you for your attention and your commitment to recycling.
  9. I am told Surtidor sells boxes for 5 pesos each.
  10. I've been selected to represent La Huerta west by the Ajijic Pueblo Magico Committee. Also I have received a few donations that will make the Recycling center more comfortable and efficient for our volunteers. Thanks to all!
  11. I can accept any donations. If you wish, you can paypal to ms1cb@yahoo.com noting MAS recycling, Ajijic. I have been corrected about the tax receipts. I am informed only US cash donations can be tax donation receipted. So sorry for my error.
  12. Thank you for any help you can give. The conditions at the recycling center can be easily upgraded for the working volunteers with a little care.
  13. I can pickup or meet donors at their convenience. I have been corrected about the tax receipts. I am informed only US cash donations can be tax donation receipted. So sorry for my error.
  14. I am VP of the nonprofit operating the recycling center in west Ajijic. Our goals are to improve the ecology of our home, teach children and adults about conservation/recycling and to bring our training to other villages. We intend to become financially self sufficient. Beyond financial donations, we need: 2 box fans, any kind of transport dolly, wheel barrows, stools, chairs, shop vac, large trash cans, toilet seats (3), tools, lockable cabinets, lockable cabinets and hoses. If you are cleaning out we would appreciate any / all these items. Tax receipts are available for US and Canada
