The mission of park city
Park city conservation association serves as a drop-off point for recyclables, including aluminum cans, corrugated cardboard, eps packing foam, all colors of glass, mixed metal, mixed paper, office paper, plastics, e-waste, batteries, cell phones, printer cartridges, jewel cases, and mercury containing items. Four satellite centers around the area accept a variety of these items as well. Pcca has an education program designed for students in grades k-12, as well as education programs for government, business, and other organizations. This also aims to educate the community regarding re-use options, yard waste reduction and composting, and general sustainability issues. The association has a very large restore program. The program allows unused building materials and shipping and storage materials to be dropped off at the center to be claimed and used by other patrons. This significantly reduces the amount of waste in the landfill and provides a community thrift store for the sale of wood and other desirable materials.

Reviews for Park City Conservation Association
Insa's (the E.D.'s) oversight of both the mission and operations of the organization are an example for non-profits everywhere.
She is constantly working to expand services offered while staying within our mission. Examples include the addition of EPS and shoe recycling at the center and organizing the Water Festival a clean-water outreach program for grade-schoolers every year.
She also demands a strict budget and accountability against that budget. Within the last two years we have even been able to set aside some money for an endowment to prevent against going dark if we have a bad fundraising year.
In sum, this is a great organization that stewards its resources extremely well.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Not only have I seen people's reactions to the center (I didn't know I could recycle that here) but have also been able to help city/county work through sustainability issues with the ED and watched as kids learn about how to help with clean water for their community.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would find more room so that the center could properly take all of the items it would like to as well as have a better means for field trips that come to the center.
