Thanks to the photographic talents of one our volunteers, this blog entry is dedicated to our 707 E. 9th Street Community Recycling Drop-off Center. This is what recycling looks like at Ecology Action!
These photos were taken last week and are pretty indicative of the impressive amount of material that Ecology Action was able to recycle during SXSW. Take our word for it, it was a lot. In fact, our amazing recycling center staff, volunteers and visiting AmeriCorps NCCC team are hard at work as we speak (it's been almost 48 hours since the festival officially ended) still sorting recycling from local music venues.
Fun fact: last month we recycled over 150 tons of material. We can't wait to get the numbers in for March!
