About Us

I feel so lucky! I am so passionate about the environment and I get to spend my time helping people become better recyclers. My twenty-two brothers and sisters have taught me how difficult changing behavior is – I’m the oldest, so you can imagine! – but we never stop trying. And it’s working! In some municipalities, up to 60% of households are now Recycle Coach subscribers.

Recycling is so important to the environment, but it’s not always easy to understand. The other Coachlings and I – that’s what they call us: Coachlings. Pretty cool, isn’t it? Anyway, the four of us work hard to make recycling simpler. We’re trying to make recycling more fun, too, so people can get better without feeling it’s just another chore!

Hi, I'm Scarlett

I do all the heavy lifting for the team – literally! I’m good at lifting and carrying larger objects. And let’s face it, being our size, everything is big! I’m always ready to help and I’m a huge fan of recycling.

I just adore Scarlett. She always thinks about new ways to engage people in recycling, which helps us teach them how they can be better at it. Because you know…things are pretty bad right now with people putting all kinds of things in their recycling that don’t belong, like gadgets and gizmos, broken glasses, and more. I love it when we start to see people doing better!

Hi there! I'm Daisy.

Us Coachlings know municipal budgets are hurting, so we strive to give you the most value for your dollars. My specialty is “What Goes Where?” Ask me anything about recycling! I have an encyclopedic mind. I can tell you where an item goes based on where you live, if you live in one of the 3,000 municipalities I’ve already memorized. I’m going to need a nap soon!

The world has a finite amount of natural resources buried underground, and it takes a lot of energy to get them out. Recycling prevents us from having to dig up new natural resources. I mean, can you imagine if one day we ran out of steel or aluminum? With recycling, we can reuse  materials over and over without digging.

Milo, here.

Some people think it’s short for Barbara and others think it’s short for Robert. It’s just Bobbie. Scarlett is my cousin on my mother’s side. She’s good at simplifying recycling, which is important because lots of people think it’s gotten too complicated. Sometimes she can be a bit bossy, but she’s starting to listen to me!

It’s so important to future generations and as a kid myself, I think it’s equally important that recycling education be fun. I’m excited!

People call me Bobbie.

Bring home the Coachlings!

What Else Does Recycle Coach Do?

Haulers provide waste & recycling curbside collection and processing for municipalities under contract. In some cities, rather than the city awarding the contract to one company, they allow their residents to contract directly with the hauler of their choice. In these markets, differentiation and simplicity are more important. Haulers view education typically don’t seek out a service such as ours. That said, some haulers are now adding this type of service. Also of note, haulers usually come to us (not often) when their municipality client is asking them to provide technology such as ours. When it comes to cost, we understand the competitiveness of the industry and we offer really low cost packages to haulers. We focus on offering education - the solution to today's primary problem of contamination.

Universities and colleges struggle. Every year a new batch of students shows up, and many of they come from an area with different recycling rules and list of accepted items. Even worse, their rules are often different from those of their host city. For most of these kids it’s their first time living away from home, and at home, they may not have been engaged or even active in recycling. And guess what, recycling is not on their minds (think boys, girls, drinking, etc.) Recycling is important to these schools because of sustainability rankings that are sometimes a factor in where kids decide to attend. The Recycling on Campus app engages students in recycling and teaches them to be better recyclers.
