What happens to the items Ridwell collects?
We work with a variety of speciality recyclers and local community programs to responsibly recycle and reuse your items. You can read more about our partners and our landfill diversion rates on our transparency page: https://www.ridwell.com/transparency
If you have any specific questions on what happens to items we pick up, which are not addressed on the transparency page or on the What We Take page for that category, we’re happy to provide additional insight if you email firstname.lastname@example.org!
P.S. here’s an in-depth blog post about how our most popular category, plastic film, is processed and where it goes!
