Volunteerism

Recology improves the communities we serve through resource recovery education and community outreach.

In 2007, Recology established a Volunteer Program whose mission is to support the communities we serve through employee engagement and sustainable practices.  Recology employees do a tremendous job uniting as a team to volunteer their own time and resources to improve the communities where we operate.

Our volunteer projects have included providing food service to the homeless; using recycled paint and reclaimed resources to beautify a child care center, a shelter for recovering addicts, a county fairground, and a multi-generational community center and neighborhood; landscaping the exterior of an inner-city youth club; and “Recologizing” an award-winning rose garden that had been overtaken by decades of neglect.

The following list represents a few of the organizations where we have made the best and highest use of our resources and partnership:
