Conservation Work

Our Recycling Outreach Team offers recycling services for businesses and large public events throughout San Francisco. In just the past 12 months, Corpsmembers have:

  • Provided recycling services at more than 130 events and large scale festivals with tens of thousands of attendees.
  • Diverted 281 tons of recyclables from our landfills

Corpsmembers on three recycling crews work with their supervisors to run most aspects of our recycling business, learning valuable work skills and conservation techniques while they are on the job. They:

  • Collect recycling on routes throughout the city
  • Sort recyclables
  • Drop off and sell recyclables
  • Educate San Francisco businesses, non-profits and special event producers and attendees about best recycling practices

We collect:

  • Aluminum and steel cans
  • Glass beverage containers
  • Plastic bottles, cans, tubs and lids (#1, #2, #4, #5)
  • Paper
  • Newspaper
  • Cardboard
  • Compost
