Join us for this special program in The Commonwealth Club's series recognizing recipients of The Club's 2020 Distinguished Citizens Award. This program honors both Recology, the company, and its leadership.
Recology's mission represents a fundamental shift from traditional waste management to resource recovery, developing sustainable practices that can be implemented globally.

Farmers across California and Oregon use Recology organic compost for fruit, vegetables, flowers, plants and vineyards. Recology is also 100 percent employee-owned.
As Recology's president and CEO since 1980, Mike Sangiacomo has led and inspired many of the company's innovative recycling and diversion programs. Sangiacomo also serves as a director and an executive officer of Recology’s subsidiaries. He holds a B.S. degree in business administration from the University of San Francisco.
