Recycle for a Reason: A Safe Place

Do you have a stack of empty toner boxes at work? How about flattened cardboard boxes? A great way to reduce junk is by donating Acceptable Recycling Items to Garvey’s Office Products’ Recycle for a Reason program. Not only will you get rid of items taking up valuable office space, but you will also end up helping a local charity.

So How Does It Work?

In order to make the Recycle for a Reason program a success, we have some simple guidelines to follow. If you are a customer, you can schedule a pickup of your recycled items on your next office supply delivery. If you are not a Garvey’s customer, we ask that you drop off your recycling at our facility at 7500 N. Caldwell Ave., Niles, IL during our working hours of 9 a.m. – 5 p.m, M-F.

But Hurry... Collections End September 30th

Once you get your items picked up or drop them off, the real works begins. At the end of each quarter, all used toners, flattened cardboard and old electronics are sorted by our Nice Guys and shipped off to our recycling partners. Once recycled, 100% of the profits are donated to a local charity.

This Quarter’s Recipient Is A Safe Place

So where does your money end up? It depends. To share the love, we switch out our recipients every quarter. This quarter’s recipient is A Safe Place, and let us assure you that this program does a whole lot of good. A Safe Place is the leading advocate in northern Illinois for eliminating domestic violence, assisting victims in transforming their lives after domestic violence and educating the community on healthy relationships. They do many, many things including: A 24-hour crisis line, emergency shelter and placing families in homes, counseling for adults and children, group support and art therapy, filing orders of protection at the courthouse and legal advocacy, facilitating supervised visitations and custody exchanges, working with abusers to help them learn accountability for their actions, professional training for community groups and corporations, middle and high school education for teens, and mentoring groups. Last year, A Safe Place served 16,000 individuals!
