We recycle over 400,000 pounds of goods each year

Recycling is important to us at Good Samaritan Ministries. In addition to recycling over 400,000 pounds of goods each year, we partner with other organizations to maximize our recycling program. Recycled items are not sellable due to extreme wear, or they are broken or outdated.

PARTNERS IN RECYCLING

Buffalo Exports
Studies show that billions of pounds of potentially recyclable used clothing and textiles are discarded into our country’s landfills each year. Buffalo Exports works with thrift stores, charities, municipalities, recycling centers, schools, religious organizations, etc., in an effort to remove these recyclable materials from the waste stream. Most of these goods are shipped to developing nations with genuine needs that can only afford to purchase inexpensive recycled clothing. This is one of the few businesses in which everyone benefits throughout the process.

Steel Etc.
Located in Great Falls, Montana, Steel Etc is Central Montana’s leader in ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal recycling. Our recycling center processes steel, stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass, lead, batteries, radiators, AC condensers, electric motors, transmissions, clean plastic, starters, alternators, cardboard, and more. We pay cash for your scrap metal based on the weight. Containers are available for pick up or delivery. We also buy and recycle junk cars. We work with our customers to assist them in making as much money as possible with their scrap.
