Join Green Drinks at RecycleForce for a tour of their very unique recycling facilities. Ed Stites will explain how this company observes the triple bottom line for People, Planet and Profit. Ed prides himself as a locavore, and is the current president-elect of Indy Progressive Rotary.
RecycleForce, is a social enterprise offering comprehensive and innovative recycling services while providing life-changing workforce training to formerly incarcerated individuals. Taking the electronic waste and other recyclables provided by residents and corporate partners, RecycleForce deconstructs these items, recycles the materials and disposes of the waste safely and cleanly. The scrap metals and other reusable materials collected in this process are then sold to help pay for job training programs and employment opportunities for formerly incarcerated men and women in order to support their re-entry back into society. RecycleForce is a 501(c)3 organization, and is R2-certified.
Parking? According to Ed: “We have a parking lot just across a nice little park from our door at the east end of the long blue building we are in. The Circle City Industrial Complex is at the corner of tenth and Brookside, but we are at the other end a kilometer away. The easiest way to get here and park is to come down Brookside to Arsenal turn south past the cute little park and park in the parking lot. We are right there where those two roads come together.”
