Northeast Broadway Business Association (NEBBA), Point West Credit Union, and Here We Go Again Deluxe Resale Boutique are sponsoring a Styrofoam recycling and Secure Document Shredding event Saturday, April 19th in honor of Earth Day. Clean, white Styrofoam blocks and bags or boxes of documents for shredding will be accepted from 9 am – Noon in the rear parking lot of Zeller Chapel of the Roses at 2107 NE Broadway.

Total Reclaim will provide the Styrofoam recycling. They are R2 certified and ISO 14001 certified.

The $5.00 charge per box (or equivalent) for shredding and Styrofoam recycling will benefit NEBBA’s marketing fund to help promote the Northeast Broadway district’s great variety of local businesses. Bagged Styrofoam packing peanuts will also be accepted.

The recycle event offers a great opportunity to do some spring cleaning and easily get rid of hard-to-recycle Styrofoam that can’t just be dropped at the curb with other materials!

Chris is a self-confessed resale fashionista. A fashion recycler from an early age, she learned the consignment business from her mother, Jan Gauger, at omt divine resale in Lincoln, Nebraska. Chris moved to Portland, Oregon in 1990 and immediately felt at home, among her people. She started Here We Go Again Deluxe Resale Boutique in 1992 and has never looked back. The second location of her store opened in 1997. Chris loves pretty much everything about clothes and fashion, but she has a serious boot and shoe addiction that is fed by the two stores. It's doubtful she will ever be recovered. In addition to clothes, Chris loves mentoring young women and teaching them about what it takes to run and manage a small business. She has employed some pretty remarkable women over the years and is grateful for all they've done to help grow Here We Go Again. She is a Hoosier by birth, but was raised in Nebraska. She has two sisters who continue to run the consignment store there, and one brother who has sense enough to stay out of the way. Her husband of twenty-seven years, is a land use planner and the fix-anything-guru that Chris relies upon more often than she'd like.
