YLC Recycles

What is it?

It’s time to go GREEN!

YLC Recycles engages volunteers interested in helping New Orleans become a greener, more sustainable place to live through education and service of our community. We are all responsible for making our community a healthy place to live, and YLC recycles is leading the way one plastic bottle at a time!

How do we do it?

Volunteers work as a team to provide recycling services for festivals, concerts, and other great events all over the New Orleans area. We also spend time educating the community about which materials they can recycle, why recycling is so important, and what recycling options are available to them at home, work, and school. The results have been amazing!
