Alabama Coastal Cleanup Recycling

Recycling Efforts


Due to the expected massive extent of cleanup due to Hurricane Sally, recycling efforts will be suspended for 2020. We expect to resume recycling for future cleanups.

In 2019, event coordinators partnered with the Weeks Bay Foundation, Thompson Engineering, and Osprey Initiative to recycle plastic #1 and aluminum. For the fourth straight year, The Osprey Initiative worked with all zones to collect 385 cubic feet of recycling material. This equates to roughly 125 pounds of aluminum and 200 pounds of plastic. The collected bottles were taken to a company in Atlanta that makes graduation gowns from recycled plastics.
