The brainchild of Action Jackson, Idaho Youth Education Recycling Partnership ( iYerp),  was started in 2007 to improve our

community and raise funds for Idaho children through recycling metal from construction projects. IYERP is a program of the John William Jackson Fund (JWJF) who works with general contractors in Idaho and beyond to collect metal scrap which is then dropped off at Pacific Steel and Recycling where the proceeds from the metal is donated to the John William Jackson Fund.

Many of us continue to be inspired by the mission of the JWJF and by the energy and passion demonstrated by it’s leader Action Jackson.

Listen to the interview live on Radio Boise on February 4, at 3.00 or you can stream it live at http://radioboise.us/. Podcast is available HERE.
