Fishing Web Recycling Week & BBQ Fundraiser

We are planning a multiple-day recycling event to collect and recycle fishing web combined with a BBQ Fundraiser for the fishing web recycling program generously sponsored by Alaska Commercial Company!

We will be collecting nets on June 8, 9, 11, ( 9 am – 5 pm), and Saturday June 12 (10 am – 2 pm). We are skipping the likely opener days as there probably won’t be as many fishermen in town able to recycle nets.


Then the BBQ fundraiser will be on Wednesday 9, 11 am – 2 pm. The fundraiser will help CRWP fund the program (staff time and pay for shipping the nets to a recycling facility).
We will need lots of volunteers to help with both the fishing web recycling event and the BBQ fundraiser. The fishing web recycling work will consist of prepping the nets for recycling. The BBQ fundraiser duties will include set-up, tear-down, taking orders, and prepping food.
If you are able to volunteer please respond by filling out this Google Form with which shifts you are available for. The fishing web recycling shifts are 4 hours each and the BBQ Fundraiser is a 3-hour shift. If you are only able to volunteer for a partial shift, we would still appreciate the help. Just let Shae know when you are available and we will plug you in.
