We have had the most incredible experience with Recycling Avenues. The level of expertise and professionalism has been superb. We donated silver flatware a couple of months ago. The value of the silver, determined by an appraisal that RA had done, was much higher than any of us anticipated. I received a call from RA to ask whether we still wanted to donate the silver or would we prefer to take it back, given it's value. We chose to split the proceeds with RA. RA then proceeded to ebay the silver. Towards the end of the bidding process an offer came in that was over the asking price. Once again, we received a call from RA telling us about the offer, but also recommending that we hold off, since their experience has been that when an over asking price offer comes in, that usually means that the final selling price will be even higher. We chose to wait out the bidding process and remarkably we sold the silver at over twice the asking price. Thanks and congratulations to RA on a job WELL DONE!

I have been so impressed with Recycling Avenues in the short time they have been in business. I had a small decorative box collection I wanted to get rid of. They were able to sell everything on ebay. When I delivered the items the employees were polite and so friendly. I am also quite happy with the convenience of having a recycting bin in our community Village Hall. I have been able to recycle an old cell phone and ink cartridges conveniently and for a very good cause.

Some of my coworkers and I went out to eat this evening with a group that serves those with special needs-- ,NWSRA . We had a great time as we always do, when it was time to pay the bill, to our surprise a stranger paid for all 14 of us!!!! we could not believe it, the bill was almost 500.00 dollars! We gave him one of the flyers to the business I work for. It goes to show that there are kind
heartted and generous people out there. Maybe we will cross each other's path again, he would not give us his name to top it off.

I know all the employees involved have worked hard and have created a very successful business plan that now provides employment opportunities for people with special needs.
