Recycling to many seems like something that should be available to everyone, everywhere. At Recyclops we feel the same way when it comes to giving everyone access to recycling that works best for them and their lifestyle.
But since some cities around the country have their recycling picked up with their waste, it’s easy to be confused on why Recyclops is even needed in the first place, and why we are charging customers for our service. This blog post will help you best understand the value of our service and why you need Recyclops in your city and that starts with understanding what we do.
Our mission at Recyclops is to provide access to affordable recycling to all, regardless of where people live, starting with Recycling. We strive to allow everyone the ability to live their ideal sustainable lifestyle in whatever form that takes.
We use technology to drive innovative solutions for sustainability, creating jobs in all the communities in which we operate. Today, Recyclops operates in over 15 states with even more to come in the rest of 2021. In each of the communities we serve, we bring in our core values of:
- Customer happiness
- Environment first
- Long term wellbeing
These are all values that Recyclops takes into account every single day. We want to bring out the best in our communities for those who recycle and live in them. Customers can choose to recycle several materials depending on their location. To see what you can and cannot recycle in your area, find your location here.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Americans created up to 270 million tonnes of waste in 2017, a figure which is still growing annually. Out of the 270 million only 94.2 million tonnes of waste was properly recycled, which is only approximately 35% of total waste. On top of this only, 8% of plastic waste was recycled in 2017 which means that 92% of plastic waste escaped the recycling process and ended up in a landfill or worse.
This is why Recyclops is needed so heavily today. We ensure that all recycling that is recycled or collected by our team is dealt with properly and in an environmentally friendly way.

Depending on your location, recycling is as easy as putting all your materials in one or more bags (depending on how many you have) and putting them right on your doorstep or curbside. Your local Recyclops driver will be there to pick up your materials and ensure they arrive at the destination. And don’t worry about making space for another bin, Recyclops bags or carts come with all our services and pickups come at your convenience.
We want to make recycling easy and simple, and that starts with recycling on your schedule.
