Our Vision: A World Without Waste

The Recology mission represents a fundamental shift from traditional waste management to resource recovery. We seek to eliminate waste by developing and discovering sustainable resource recovery practices that can be implemented globally.

Our Mission: Building Exceptional Resource Ecosystems

This begins by creating a resource ecosystem – one that both protects the environment and sustains the local community. It’s a ‘closed loop’ ecosystem that makes it possible for the communities Recology serves to achieve high landfill diversion and meet sustainability goals.

  • Collection – Identify the needs of the community and propose and implement programs to collect and process materials.
  • Recovery – Design sorting strategies, deploy a three-bin system, and establish outreach and education programs.
  • Processing – Build infrastructure that includes machinery and technologies to extract and sort raw materials.
  • Marketing & Commodities – Ensure that recycled commodities are sold to manufacturers that will create further recyclable consumer goods.
