A cleaner environment. A model for personal success.
PAR-RecycleWorks, a 501(c)3 organization, is a social enterprise offering environmentally responsible recycling services while providing life-changing workforce training to formerly incarcerated individuals.
Taking the electronic waste and other recyclables provided by residents, faith-based organizations, corporate and educational partners, PAR-RecycleWorks 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 salaries and job skill development for formerly incarcerated men and women in order to support their productive re-entry back into society.
Two critical problems: one social, the other environmental. The question then becomes, “How can we begin to solve these two serious problems?” Please read on to see how PAR-Recycle Works brings an innovative approach to addressing both needs.
