ReWorksSA – Designed for San Antonio’s Future

The expansion of ReWorksSA is a joint endeavor between the Solid Waste Management Department (SWMD) and the City’s Office of Sustainability (OS). It is an environmental program to provide the local business community with consultancy, resources, materials, and training at no cost. ReWorksSA is also a valuable promotion and recognition tool for organizations that successfully complete the program and receive certification as a Gold, Silver or Bronze sustainable business – or the highest achievement, the Pinnacle Award.

Please watch the introductions from City Department Directors Douglas Melnick of OS and David Newman of SWMD.

"When ReWorksSA was presented at the College & University Recycling Coalition workshop in San Antonio this October, attendees were particularly impressed by the program’s focus on public-private partnerships and by the opportunity for academic institutions to get involved. ReWorksSA, along with San Antonio’s hosting of AASHE in 2017 and launch of a Climate Action and Adaptation Plan, is another example of how the people of San Antonio are working together to help the city become a leader in sustainability at a national level."
