Recology is the recycling, composting, and trash collection company for the City of San Francisco as well as over 26 communities in California, Oregon and Washington. We were founded in San Francisco almost 100 years ago by the workers that drove the horses and carts through their routes collecting trash, separating out bottles, cans, newspapers and rags to sell as scrap. These early-day recyclers formed a co-op that has evolved over the ears into the Recology of today. A modern 100% employee-owned company that remains dedicated to those core values.
Our operations have also evolved over time to meet our customers’ changing needs. Today, we are not a traditional garbage company. Instead we brand ourselves a resource recovery company, We feel the clothing swap Suzanne hosts each year at Recology blends perfectly with our vision statements that says “at Recology we see a world without waste.”
Each year, San Franciscans send more than 39 million pounds of textiles to the landfill, enough to fill 1500 Muni buses. That is over 4,00 pounds each hour. Textiles are one of the top three materials that San Franciscans send to the landfill that can easily be reused or recycled.
We see the clothing swap as one of the ways to raise awareness of the issue and by hosting encourage people to come up with new and innovative ways to keep textiles out of the landfill and reduce consumption.
