Check out how Return Recycling works with all of its partners:


Working with businesses around campuses to support waste reduction from the source.


We empower students to be the drivers of effective and lasting change at their own schools.


 We drive colleges and universities to
reach their waste reduction goals in
       creative and effective ways.


About Us

Return Recycling is all about transparency, responsibility, and community - around waste. We started out with a simple idea: to make trash something people talk about. What resulted was a full blown vision of revolutionizing the way waste is conceived of, produced, and processed in university, city, and global systems. 

Currently, our team is working to develop The Collective, our own waste characterization app, to support colleges and universities in their zero waste journeys. We're also expanding our consulting, research, and audit services.
