TRUE, SINGLE-STREAM, CURBSIDE RESOURCE RECOVERY!

We challenge the idea that recycling is not easy, cheap, efficient, or effective - it can be!

We collect most resources (except liquids, organics & food, and medical waste) as long as it is clean & dry.

We find the highest and best use for collected resources - reuse, repurpose, rehome, and recycle.

If you are in the greater Clifton, VA area, we invite you to make the most of your recycling efforts and join The Resource Recovery Project (RRP).

RESOURCES RECOVERED TO DATE:

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

20210702_164010683_iOS.jpg

GREAT SERVICE!

Kim and I would like to express our appreciation for the great service provided by the Resource Recovery Team.  We have always been concerned about the amount of our "trash" that has ended up in a landfill.  The Resource Recovery Project has opened our eyes to what is recoverable and has made it easy for us to convert trash into recoverable items.  Thank you so much for your indispensable service!

- Kim & Steve

FULFILLING & EASY

Being a part of the Resource Recovery Project has been fulfilling and easy. Instead of being confused about what can be recycled and having little faith in your recycling program, you can put almost anything that is clean and dry into the Big Green Bag and know it will get to the right recovery channel.

SO EASY!

The Resource Recovery Project is the easiest and most impactful recycling program we've ever been a part of. Being able to recycle more than we could before, while not having to sort or organize ourselves, and having peace of mind that the materials will be responsibly handled is a huge benefit. The transparent communication and metrics on recycling progress are really great to quantify and increase our confidence in the program. We are extremely happy to be a part of this program!
