Sustainable South Bronx Visits the Action Environmental Material Recycling Facility

Yesterday, we were pleased to welcome members of the Sustainable South Bronx (SSBx) to our material recycling facility located in the Bronx.

Members and staff of the organization were given a tour of the facility from our Director of Recycling Operations, Chris Morgan. The group got an up-close look at our Optical Sorters and the recycling processes.

Director of Employee Engagement, Tom Carey, explained what it’s like to work for Action and how many of the team members at the facility are local Bronx residents themselves.

The group then discussed the current state of the recycling industry, the environment and the work we are doing at Action to improve the way NYC recycles.

The SSBX works to address economic and environmental issues in the South Bronx – and throughout New York City – through a combination of green job training, community greening programs, and social enterprise.
