James’ Neighborhood Recycling Service is Looking for Warehouse Space

1 Aug 2019

James’ Neighborhood Recycling Service (www.jamesrecycling.com) is expanding and needs an affordable warehouse space.   Even a small shared space would do!

James, along with his mom Kathi Goldman and his aide Mardi Gotesman, started a recycling pick up business three years ago for non-curbside items.  The business has grown to service more than 200 households and has a long waiting list.  It’s currently run out of the family garage, but with plans to open a public drop-off site it needs a larger space.  James, who is 21, has high functioning autism and this business has helped him financially and socially.   The goal of this business is to grow and employ more people on the autistic spectrum or with other developmental disabilities.

They’ve had recent media coverage on KGW news (https://bit.ly/2HpNWnz) and in Willamette Week (http://bit.ly/2Ys2oSn) , where he was named “Best Recycler” in their Best of Portland edition.

What James’ Neighborhood is looking for:

  • Around 1000-2000 sq feet
  • Garage door access
  • Bathroom
  • Three phase power (they are happy to pay for installation) for their shredder
  • West side, preferably close to Raleigh Hills/ Garden Home/ Multnomah Village
  • Access to utility sink or water spicket
  • Parking for customers who come by to drop off recycling, with an average stay of of 15 minutes. 
  • Weekly drop off hours will be limited and the business is happy to work around your schedule.

If you have, or know of an available space, please contact James' Neighborhood Recycling.
