RecycleForce, located in the Circle City Industrial Comples, 1125 Brookside Ave., Suite D12, is a 501(3) organization that provides comprehensive recycling services, plus workforce training to former incarcerated individuals to help rebuild their lives and provide an important service to the community, Founded in 2006, the program has grown from 2 workers recycling over half a million pounds of processed materials to 75 employees handling 6 million pounds every year.
While RecycleForce started by specializing in recycling electronic waste, it has expanded to offer recycling collection for a whole host of materials, including plastic, aluminum, paper and cardboard. Since its inception, RecycleForce has helped clean up the environment by processing a total of 11 million pounds of recyclable material.
Drop off recyclables at their location between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays. The drive-thru is located in the roll up door on the far east end of the building.
To pay for the safe disposal of e-waste and to help fund their job training program, RecycleForce requests a $10 donation for the disposal of CRT televisions and monitors, and $20 for all refrigerant containing appliances. Because RecycleForce is a non-profit, your donations are tax deductible.
