Tukwila, WA, January 30, 2015 – The Washington State Recycling Association (WSRA), a 501(c)6 nonprofit trade association committed to recycling education and promotion in Washington State, is seeking donations for its silent auction taking place during their 35th Annual Conference and Trade Show, May 17-20, 2015 at The Davenport Hotel in Spokane, Washington.

WSRA’s Annual Conference draws over 300 recycling and waste prevention industry professionals from around the country. A showcase for the latest recycling, re-use, and waste reduction programs and technology, the conference will feature leading-edge educational sessions, local and national experts and speakers, 10-20 student grant recipients from Washington schools, an awards program to celebrate the achievements of Washington’s recycling businesses and leaders, and valuable networking opportunities.

As a part of this four-day event, WSRA holds a silent auction to support their work to expand and diversify recycling around the state through leadership, advocacy and education. In addition to the Annual Conference, some of WSRA’s educational programs include recycling and waste prevention workshops and facility tours, best practices reports, community resources and recycling information through the WSRA website, and a quarterly newsletter that highlights the recycling community’s news, events, and successes.

Business and community members are encouraged to donate items to the silent auction, including:
 Gifts of experience (vacation packages, event tickets, wine tasting, kayaking tour, etc.)
 Gift cards (local businesses, restaurants, landmarks, parks, etc.)
 Homemade goods (jewelry, wood work, recycled gift cards, specialty foods, décor, etc.)
 Services (host a dinner, offer an educational class, etc.)
