It's been a busy summer for RACLA!

From Dodger Games to sold-out events at the Rose Bowl (including LA Galaxy vs Manchester United soccer match and the highly anticipated Beyonce & Jay-Z Concert), our corpsmembers have easily collected well over 150,000 CRV beverage containers this season alone. Be sure to pitch in and recycle your bottles & cans at these events!

For the past 12 years, LA Corps' Recycling Across Los Angeles (RACLA) program has provided a valuable and important service in the collection of recyclables in LA County. RACLA is a community collection program certified by CalRecycle (SP#0315).

RACLA recycling operations are currently housed at our 3,000-square-foot facility located in North East Los Angeles. We service 130 accounts, including LAUSD schools, businesses (Los Angeles Convention Center, CBS), entertainment venues (Pasadena's Rose Bowl, AEG's STAPLES, LA Dodger Stadium, and LA Convention Center), and public parks. In FY 12-13 alone, RACLA recycled more than 376 tons of cans and bottles which is approximately 3,731,989 beverage containers. Additionally, the program recycled over 206 tons of mixed paper and cardboard.
