What We Do
Since 1993, Fresno EOC Local Conservation Corps (LCC) has been operating a Recycling Program sponsored by CalRecycle.
We provide young adults, 18-25 years old in Fresno and surrounding communities, opportunities and support that will enable them to work towards achieving their full potential in the areas of educational attainment (completion of high school diploma; college/vocational courses), postsecondary college and career planning, work ethic and job skills development, leadership development, life skills development, civic awareness, and community service.
The average number of individuals participating in LCC programs is over 160 young adults per year. Current programs managed under the LCC include: YouthBuild Fresno, YouthBuild AmeriCorps, YouthBuild Postsecondary Initiative–College and Career Center, Paid Vocational Programs, and the YouthBuild AmeriCorps Educational Awards Program.
The LCC paid vocational training portfolio includes opportunities in construction, grounds maintenance, recycling, solar and weatherization. Applications for the paid training positions are accepted year-round.
Types of Recycling
Our program teams up with businesses, schools, office complexes, government agencies, and campgrounds generating large volumes of California Redemption Value (CRV) beverage containers (aluminum cans; plastic and glass bottles). LCC also provides special event recycling at large-scale community events throughout the Central Valley.
The Mattress Recycling Council’s Bye Bye Mattress program recycles more than 1 million mattresses each year in California. As a participating collection site, we accept mattresses and box springs for free at both of our recycling centers. Recycling mattresses diverts valuable material from landfills and turns them into other useful products instead.
Drop off only mattresses and box springs during the times listed below, or call and ask for Recycling Center to arrange for a pick up: (559) 264-1048 (note: There is a small fee of $25 for pick up of mattress or box spring; $40 for both)
For pick ups, due to COVID-19, all mattresses will need to be left outside. We will not enter a home to retrieve mattresses.
We CANNOT Accept the Following:
- Excessively wet, damaged, partial, or soiled mattresses
- Mattress with bed bugs
- Car beds
- Fold out sofa beds
- Furniture and other household items
- Infant and child products
- Mattress pads, toppers, pillows, or bedding
- Waterbeds, air mattresses, or sleeping bags
