In 2007, Recology formalized its 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 projects represent a few of partnerships we have made with organizations to make the best and highest use of our resources:
