About Us

For 28 years, Civicorps Recycling has provided high-quality recycling collections to businesses across the East Bay, while also training low-income youth to enter lucrative careers. We are now the largest non-profit recycler in the East Bay.

Alameda County ordinance requires that all commercial businesses, non-profits and institutions must have recycling services. Our services offer triple bottom line — financial, social and environmental— benefits.

Financial

You save money from our recycling services that are 40-50% lower cost than current garbage rates.

Social

Your business helps resilient young adults train to enter high-demand careers.

Environmental

The more you recycle, the less trash will go to landfills.

Civicorps Recycling is a social enterprise of Civicorps, which is a 33-year old non-profit located in Oakland.  Learn more about Civicorps’ life-changing programs for Oakland youth, age 18-26.
