Recycling Program

Teddies’ Recycling is a program at Roosevelt High School that is currently run as a job experience for our special education students in the Autism, DCD, and Life Skills programs. Our students recycle many different materials including paper, aluminum and other scrap metals, and electronics. Currently the majority of our time is spent recycling computers into their component parts, separating those parts further into their salvageable components, and then selling those components to recyclers for cash.

We are running low on the computer central processing units, computer power units and cords that our students recycle.  Our students and staff will pick up recyclable components from sites in the Twin Cities area, and deliver them to our program.

Below is a list of materials that we are able to pick up for recycling. If you have any of these materials available at your location, know of locations that have these types of materials available for pick up, or if staff at your location have items in their home that they would like to bring in for pick up, please let us know.

Teddies Recycling will take any of the following recyclable items.
