Fulton County Government’s Accountability Court and local recycler, ReMix Recycling, have teamed up to offer individuals a second chance. Men and women struggling with homelessness or recent incarceration will participate in an ongoing volunteer program that will introduce Fulton County Government’s Accountability members to the world of green jobs.
ReMix Recycling offers hands on training and has established partnerships with local trade organizations such as HTS Enterprises/Center for Sustainable Communities, Truly Living Well’s Wheat Street Gardens, and Upper Chattahoochee Riverkeeper to introduce participants to green living and opportunities for employment and entrepreneurship. Accountability Court and ReMix seek to build a network of businesses committed to stimulating metro Atlanta’s economy by employing those who have displayed strong work ethic and commitment to re-establishing their lives.
“I personally believe that we are only as strong as our community. By ReMix focusing on employing individuals that deserve a second chance, the premise of our organization displays that we stand by what we tout, personal progression and empowerment. We are one. Only through positively enhancing the lives of our volunteers, employees, clients and our community can we truly be deemed “sustainable”. That’s truly what the triple bottom line is all about.” says President, Ashley D. Parker.
Birthed in 2009 , ReMix Recycling a female minority owned recycling company of Atlanta, GA has made its mission to “recycle” in every capacity. ReMix offers comprehensive interior and exterior recycling solutions, implements, designs and manages recycling programs and provides collection services to commercial properties, small businesses, multi-family communities and events throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area. We look forward to updating you on the program's progress in the coming months.
