Last week Tim was at the Orange Grove Recycling Center in Chattanooga’s Glenwood Neighborhood. The center diverts more than 1 million tons of waste from landfills each month! It is a regional material recovery facility that accepts recyclables from curbside recycling programs, drop-off centers, businesses, and schools.
The Center employs over 130 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The employees sort, separate, bale, and prepare the recyclables to be sold to manufacturers that can reuse them.
