Who We Are

Recycle Brevard, Inc. is a 501(c)3 Florida non-profit organization that was born after learning in a landfill tour back in March 2011 that Brevard County's recycling rate was about 30%.

Recycle Brevard is focused on reducing waste and promoting sustainable living through advocacy, action, and education.
Our Goals

To promote sustainable living and the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle) in the community through educational programs that focus mainly on young children and their families, and through various projects in partnership with local schools and organizations.

To engage more, and more members of the community in practicing the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle), inspiring them to action through a variety of programs and projects.

To participate and assist in various initiatives that contribute to building a more sustainable community.

To divert as much material as possible from the landfills -- reduce waste -- to help the environment as well as less fortunate individuals whenever possible.

To educate as many people as we can about the importance of practicing the 3Rs (Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle ) in preserving our natural resources and living a more sustainable life.

And we carry on sharing information whenever we can: Recycle Brevard In The News
