Recycling & Waste Reduction

Waste reduction is a major component of our work at Asheville GreenWorks. Since 1973, our staff and volunteers have worked to educate and reduce our dependence on one-use, so-called “throw-away” items that simply fill up our landfills. Through recycling and compost education, we will reduce our need for landfills, and through these innovations support infrastructure for future green industries.

Waste reduction and recycling is a major component of our work. Establishing new recycling locations and educating the public about reducing our environmental footprint is one of our core missions. We organize the H2R collections and our Volunteers bring out the muscle for these events.

Hard 2 Recycle Events

Founded in 2011 by Rainbow Recycling, Hard 2 Recycle events are free to the public collections geared to bring awareness to other modes of recycling to our area. Four quarterly held collections to cover the four corners of the County and one central event in Downtown Asheville.  

Our goal is to educate, collect and divert items that would normally end up in the Landfill i.e Styrofoam, Electronics, Blankets, Batteries, Cooking Oil and much more.
