The Welman Project is a small, woman-run nonprofit that takes waste generated by businesses and funnels it to classrooms, where it can be repurposed.


We will be collecting clean Styrofoam food containers (clamshells, cups, meat trays, egg containers) and packing material (no packing peanuts) the first Saturday of each month at the Lucas Starbucks.

Texas Campaign for the Environment is taking on a new campaign in the city of Arlington to help reduce waste and boost recycling.

Most Arlington residents in apartments and condos do not have convenient options to recycle where they live. Many businesses lack these services as well. In single-family neighborhoods, only a portion of compostable brush material is being used to create mulch and compost. There are so many more opportunities to reduce waste and we want to hear from you about your priorities!

This is a tour of the Pratt Recycling Center. Once the City of Denton has collected the recyclables it with then sort the materials at the Materials Recovery Facility operated by Pratt. This tour will show you just how Pratt is able to streamline the sorting process. Space is limited to 20 attendees. RSVP.
