Recycle Like a Rockstar

RECYCLE LIKE A ROCKSTAR

With the help of Bridgestone, we are able to recycle/repurpose all of our tires, we scrap all of our metal (proceeds going back into fueling the organization) and we hand sort all of our bags through our Recycle Like A Rockstar events.

Many people ask, “What is the most common thing you find when cleaning the river?” By far, the most common item we pick up is the plastic bottle. The Living Lands & Waters (LL&W) team and volunteers pick up tens of thousands of plastic bottles every year in addition to hundreds of aluminum cans and glass containers.

These events happen on an as-needed basis (when the barge gets too full) so we do not have an ongoing need for volunteers here.

Check out our time-lapse video from our 2013 Recycle Like A Rockstar event!
