Reimagined Recycling is a small and young non-profit recycling, education, and art facility located in Pittsburgh, PA. We are using our non-profit art education and sustainability know-how to create a space and knowledge base where sustainability and recycling are made more transparent and accessible through art, craft, and education. We are also working towards creating a local recycling system that is easy to understand and even fun and enjoyable to use!
Currently, we are focusing our endeavors on plastic waste reduction and the recycling of plastics (specifically #5s) that the city does not accept. We host small plastic collection events where community members can drop-off plastic they would like to recycle. They are taught how to sort and delabel and introduced to our recycling and recrafting process. During this time, participants are also encouraged to discuss their personal sustainability solutions, goals, and questions.
