About
Embark on an eco-friendly adventure at a unique destination where sustainability meets community spirit, all within the walls of a former electric plant that dates back to the late 1800s. This remarkable place, not just the oldest recycling center in the nation but also the most versatile, accepts materials that many others turn away, making it a pioneer in environmental conservation. Imagine RV camping with a twist, where your stay contributes to the preservation of our planet. This facility stands out not only for its historical significance and architectural grandeur but for its vibrant role as a "Community Center with a Recycling Problem." It goes beyond being your typical drop-off center by offering a plethora of activities and spaces that foster community engagement and personal enrichment. Here, you can unwind and connect with locals over a good book rescued from the Bear's Book Nook, give a second life to treasures in Penny's Shoppe, or contribute your time and energy by volunteering in its expansive 50,000 square feet area. Proudly veteran and woman-owned, this non-profit organization showcases a deep appreciation for the military through a dedicated section, while its walls are adorned with artwork collected from around the globe, telling stories of adventures and cultures far and wide. Visitors are encouraged to inquire about the pieces, each with its own tale to tell. As the only non-government owned 501(c)(3) non-profit recycling center in the nation, this location offers RV campers an unparalleled opportunity to engage with the local community, learn about sustainability practices, and even explore the facility's unique offerings. From browsing through reclaimed goods with potential for a new life to engaging in meaningful conversations sparked by intriguing art pieces, every corner holds a surprise waiting to be discovered. Whether you're an eco-conscious traveler, a history enthusiast, or simply in search of a novel camping experience, this destination promises an enriching visit that combines the joys of RV camping with the satisfaction of contributing to a worthy cause. Dive into a world where every visit recycles not just materials but rejuvenates spirits and strengthens community bonds.
