Recology: 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.

Resource Ecosystem

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.
