do you yerp?

Started in 2007 as an initiative to improve our community and raise funds for Idaho children, the Idaho Youth Education Recycling Partnership  — iYERP — has proved to be a success thanks to businesses and individuals like you.

How it works:

  • We supply containers to collect metal scrap
  • We pick up your throw-away metal such as
    construction materials, junk cars or copper wire
  • Drop your recycling material off at Pacific Steel &
    Recycling, tell them you’d like to donate to the John William Jackson Fund.
  • You’ll receive a tax-deductable receipt for the value of
    the recycled material & you will see the impact of your
    generosity on Idaho Youth through the John William Jackson Fund.

Remember. Rethink. Reuse. Recycle.
Repeat Relentlessly.

In 2008, we started to see the enormous potential of this innovative fundraising program.  The brainchild of Bill “Action” Jackson, Vice President of Development and our friends at Pacific Steel and Recycling, this partnership has generated over $350,000.00 to-date from recycling alone.

Annual Recycling funraising numbers:

  • 2008 – $7,603.00
  • 2009 – $11,433.74
  • 2010 – $20,938.45
  • 2011 – $50,716.00
  • 2012 – $85,214.03
  • 2013 – $74,005.82
  • 2014 – $103,000.00
  • 2015 – currently scrapping… we might be in a dumpster sorting metal

Rather than heading to the landfill, we are diverting this material to recycling – from which our environment and youth benefit.
