Community and Worker Recycling Forum: support good green recycling jobs, not junk jobs!

sorterSaturday, November 9, 2 – 4 pm, La Primera Iglesia Presbiteriana Hispana, 1941 High Street, Oakland.

Recycling workers are the backbone of Alameda County’s environmental efforts to promote recycling and reduce our reliance on landfills.

Most recycling workers, the majority of whom are immigrants, earn on average less than $13/hour and are struggling to provide for their families while facing hazardous conditions on the job. Last year, a worker was even killed at the Transfer and Processing Facility in San Leandro operated by Waste Management.

Come tell Oakland councilmembers: “We want good green jobs, not junk jobs!”

Oakland is finalizing lucrative 20-year, multi-million-dollar trash and recycling contracts. Help ensure that workers are paid family-supporting wages that value the important recycling work they perform!
