Project Description

Recycle Chattanooga is a program designed to recycle used electronics in the South East Tennessee area in order to decrease the amount of e-waste that is currently being placed in our landfills. The program provides a pick-up service that will not only encourage the residential and business sector to donate their used electronics, but it also provides a convenient service that is easy for the community to access.

Project Highlights

  1. We offer a convienent and free pick-up service that makes it easy for local businesses and residents to participate in making our community a cleaner and greener environment.
  2. Donated materials can provide tax credits for businesses and residents.
  3. Not only do we offer competitive employment for individuals with intellectual develomental disabilities, but our program also trains individuals with a variety of disabilities, as well as provides community job placement for them. Our program sets an example to the community and business world that people with various disabilities are employable and that they are an vital asset to running a successful business.
