The Foothills Salvage and Recycling Society (FSRS) is a registered Not for Profit Society dedicated to keeping usable and recyclable items out of the landfill. In doing so the FSRS makes their items accessible through their facility for purchase at an affordable price. We support individuals and families in need through programs such as the Family Resource center in Okotoks.
The FSRS’s goal is to help the residents of the Foothills area, not only with affordable items, but also through donations of proceeds to charitable organizations within the Foothills annually. We are proud to say that in the last 10 years we have donated over a million dollars to organizations in the Foothills County.
The mission of the Foothills Salvage and Recycling Society is to offer an alternative site for all usable and recyclable items, in turn, preventing a copious amount of substance from entering the landfill.
From this, we can grow a strong environmentally sustainable practice and provide low-cost quality reusable items to individuals and families building a strong foundation for the future.
OUR CORE VALUES
The FSRS is proud to take the lead & help shape the future by setting a standard for other communities.
The FSRS is working hard to maintain the factors and practices that contribute to the quality of the environment on a long term basis. These include recycling, reducing, conservation, regeneration, up-cycling, restoration and reusing. Partnering with the landfill will help make their site more sustainable by redirecting goods that could be reused.
The FSRS has a sense of responsibility within our local community and strives to increase our local contributions. Current contributions include monetary donations and partnerships with local organizations.
VOLUNTEERS & BOARD MEMBERS
I was looking for a volunteer opportunity to maximize my limited time to make the most possible difference in our community. Volunteering at “The Center” was much more than I had anticipated. I became part of a new family of like minded people who were contributing to the mission of an organization that was truly making a difference in our area. Added to that, I was able to help financially support a local charity of my choice with my hours AND I had FUN doing it. After three years, I still look forward to my time volunteering at the Center.
