Recology recycling bin.Resource recovery is the reclaiming of "garbage" materials for a new use. It includes collecting, sorting, and processing materials that are traditionally viewed as waste and transforming them into the raw inputs used to create new products. Recycling and composting are among the best known resource recovery practices.



Community Events

On Saturday, September 29, 2012, over 100 volunteers from Recology, the employee-owned recycling company, added compost made from food scraps collected at Oakland restaurants to the Hoover Elementary School sustainable garden in support of the school's Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) initiative, and planted trees and various drought tolerant plants throughout the school grounds.
