Compost, Recycling, & Landfill Collection

The Recology mission represents a fundamental shift from traditional waste management to resource recovery. We seek to eliminate waste by developing and discovering sustainable resource recovery practices that can be implemented globally.

This begins by creating a resource ecosystem – one that both protects the environment and sustains the local community. It’s a ‘closed loop’ ecosystem that makes it possible for the communities Recology serves to achieve high landfill diversion and meet sustainability goals.

  • Collection – Identify the needs of the community and propose and implement programs to collect and process materials.
  • Recovery – Design sorting strategies, deploy a three-bin system, and establish outreach and education programs.
  • Processing – Build infrastructure that includes machinery and technologies to extract and sort raw materials.
  • Marketing & Commodities – Ensure that recycled commodities are sold to manufacturers that will create further recyclable consumer goods.

Healthcare

GoHealth Urgent Care is here for life's unexpected and immediate healthcare needs, providing care for everyday illnesses such as the common cold/flu, , and sports or work related injuries.

GoHealth Urgent Care has 10 Bay Area locations, all open seven days a week with extended evening and holiday hours and accept most major insurances, including worker's comp for on the job injuries.
 

At RokketMed we believe removing friction is the key to Next Generation Healthcare. We believe there are three main areas of friction that we are tackling head-on.

  • Friction in Payments
  • Friction in Access
  • Friction in Education

Our prepaid Medcard is the first step in breaking down these key friction points. We’ve demonstrated that with employer funds on various prepaid HRA vehicles we can improve the way employees get real value from the benefits their employer provides.

Our onsite COVID testing program has demonstrated that we can improve access to care by delivering certain healthcare services when and while employees are working. This approach is efficient, affordable, and builds trust and education directly to a worker that is otherwise difficult to engage with.
