At Rabbit Recycling we hand sort and inspect every item and material that enters our shop.

After inspection, the materials are generally organized into five broad categories:

commodity, donation, upcycle, specialty, and deconstruction.

When you become a customer of Rabbit Recycling, we offer full transparency

about what exactly happens to your materials when they leave the shop, just ask!

COMMODITY

Commodity is our largest category. 

Recyclables that fall under this category require large volumes/weight

in order to be shipped locally and around the USA to end-users and

processing facilities. We strictly partner with companies that provide

transparent and sustainable practices that meet our high standards. 

 

This category includes soft and rigid plastic (including foams),

metals, e-waste, and paper.

 

End users and manufacturing facilities use methods such

as thermal decomposition, heat compression, distributed

recycling, and others to create new products.

DONATION

Rabbit Recycling donates to many

different organizations, non-profits, and

shelters that give back to the community. 

 

Some of them include:

  • Resource Exchange

  • PAWS

  • Habitat for Humanity

  • Restore

  • Broad Street Ministry

  • Playbrary

  • Philly AIDS Thrift

  • Goodwill

  • Prevention Point

Specialty items are typically sent out

in smaller quantities.

 

These recyclables are sent to companies

that have facilities designed to deconstruct

and repurpose, while also responsibly

recovering any hazardous materials

(e.g. light bulbs, water filters,

smoke detectors, glassine liner,

unusable scrap fabric).

DECONSTRUCTION

Many items we get at the shop are made of different materials

and need to be deconstructed, in order for each piece

to make it into the right stream.

 

These items can range from empty floss containers to shower curtains.
