Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Energy Resources Conservation & Development, Environment, Recycling, Youth Community Service Clubs

Mission: The mission of park city

Programs: 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.

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.
