From their origins as a swap table in the late 1960s, the “Recycle Sales” which benefit AFSC have grown through a “tangled web of connections and efforts,” according to Beth Binford. Beth, the spiritual engine behind the sales, retired from AFSC in 1994 and has been leading the effort ever since. The sales are made possible by dedicated volunteers, many of whom have been involved with the operation for more than 20 years.
AFSC is a Quaker organization devoted to service, development, and peace programs throughout the world. Our work is based on the belief in the worth of every person, and faith in the power of love to overcome violence and injustice. Learn more
