Where instead of throwing things away, we locally recycled those materials into fresh raw materials to power a thriving regional manufacturing economy.

Where secondhand doesn’t mean second rate, but we develop subscription and reuse systems for our unwanted goods to power an equitable, thriving retail economy that everyone can afford.

Where instead of making the consumer responsible for single use goods and packaging, we pass smart legislation that reduces the amount of waste in our everyday lives.

Where instead of accepting an unsustainable economy, we develop a resilient economy that runs on circular systems to eliminate waste in our consumption and our human potential.

That’s the promise of Circular Philadelphia.

Join us.

Circular Philadelphia Founding Member Revolution Recovery


Revolution Recovery

As a construction recycling company with operations in Philadelphia, the Lehigh Valley and Delaware, Revolution Recovery is advancing circularity in the built environment throughout the region.  In addition to this core mission of diverting materials from landfill, they are also a leader in spurring conversation on the nature of waste and how we interact with the materials we use through their Recycled Artist in Residency (RAIR) program.

When Circular Philadelphia was established with the goal of bridging communication gaps and solving system flaws, Revolution Recovery signed on as Circular Philadelphia’s first founding member. They believe that recyclers won’t be able to fix things on their own; a forum like this is critical to make progress together.
