Recology, an employee-owned company, sees a world without waste, where resources are used and re-used in a sustainable ecosystem that strives for their best and highest use. Recology carries out its vision of a world without waste through educational programs and innovative engineering services. Recology is a company dedicated to building exceptional resource ecosystems that protect the environment and sustains their communities. Where the world sees waste, Recology see resources. Most of the world’s waste-related resources are being stored in unsustainable landfills or are being partially reprocessed into low-end products. A fundamental challenge to the communities and the environment is to return resources to their best and highest use. Recology services move the proportion of resources that communities today call “waste” to their greatest productive re-use, thus creating a fundamental shift from traditional “waste management” practices to a fully-integrated resource ecosystem paradigm. The Recology resource ecosystem is comprised of four critical components: Collection, Recovery, Processing, and Marketing, which are all interconnected to optimize the material resources Recology recovers.
