About Recology CleanScapes
Recology CleanScapes' History
Recology CleanScapes began operations in October 1997 (as CleanScapes) providing exterior cleaning and maintenance for Seattle's Historic Pioneer Square District. In October 2011, CleanScapes merged with San Francisco-based and employee-owned Recology in order to enhance our waste zero capacity. Recology is a 90-year old company, a pioneer in waste reduction and recovery, and one of the largest operators of material recovery and organics processing facilitates in the western United States.
