2012 CVAs: RecycleForce

RecycleForce workers separate waste into its useful parts.

The workers at Indy's RecycleForce understand the value of discarded objects. Society cast them off, too into the criminal justice system. After squaring up with the law, they all need a second shot. And thats where RecycleForce comes in. The firm has grown from two employees in 2006 to employ 16 full-time staff and around 50 ex-offenders cycling through its training programs on a given week. The program is designed to train them for the private-sector workforce and help them overcome any number obstacles that may prevent successful re-integration into society.  In the process, the team has recycled more than 11 million pounds of materials since its inception. More than 200 ex-offenders have found permanent, unsubsidized employment through RecycleForce.
