The popular recycling center, Bay Area Recycling for Charities, that got it's start in 2008 is adding new capabilities to their recycling arsenal. Led by Andrew Gale, over the past seven years, BARC has diverted over 20 million pounds of waste from entering local landfills, composted over 200 tons of food waste, all while employing 20 full time jobs in the community.
Their mission has always has been to further recycling activities in their community by providing service, education, and philanthropy. In 2016, OppFund was lucky to have the opportunity to support BARC while they continue to clean our Northern Michigan communities.
