WHAT PEOPLE SAY
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.
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!
NO MORE WISHFUL RECYCLING
The Resource Recovery Project has turned a lot of my “wishful recycling” into the real thing. The Big Green Bag pickup on Fridays is easy and convenient and it has kept a lot more of my used to be “throw-a-ways” out of the trash! We need to do better. We can do better. The RRP is proving it to us every Friday!
GREAT NEW IDEA
I have read that 40% of all recycled materials collected by the major trash distribution centers nation wide are dropped into land-fills. That's not OK. The RRP is working to interrupt that ratio. The world we've been given is to be enjoyed! Let's try to take care of it - with brand new ideas, like the innovative Resource Recovery Project!
COMMITTED TO RECYCLING
I’ve always been committed to reusing and recycling whenever I can. Participating in the Resource Recovery Project is easy. I love that it is centered in my community and keeps valuable resources out of the landfill.
TOTALLY CHANGED MY MIND
Even with a degree in the environmental science space, I often felt suspicious of recycling schemes. Knowing that recyclables are commodities and sold, often not recycled, and shipped to a foreign country left me incredulous and disillusioned with the process. I was not a supporter of recycling as we know it and typically opted for a landfill rather than shipping trash to a developing nation.
However, after learning about the Resource Recovery Project, my entire perception and understanding changed. Here, we partner with a known local representative who educates and empowers us on the value of our recoverable resources. We know without a doubt that these are accumulated and distributed to the most suitable recovery stream that will redeploy the assets back into our economy. Not only do I have faith in this system - it's cheaper than what my trash company was charging!
