Our mandate.
Ever Green Recycling is a non-profit organization that provides meaningful and sustainable employment for individuals recovering from mental illness.

How we started.
In 1993, Ever Green Recycling started as a workshop program for mental health employees where they learned how to recycle aluminum cans, paper, and cardboard. But like anything green, we’ve grown. Today, Ever Green Recycling is a leading recycling and environmental business with four recycling depots and a fibre recycling facility.

We are a Business Enterprise.
Ever Green Environmental Corporation is an independent business enterprise focused on advancing environmental practices, products and services for residences, businesses and the community.

We are a Registered Charity.
True to our roots, Ever Green remains dedicated to supporting mental health programs and advancing mental health employees in integrated workplaces. Our mandate is to help individuals recovering from serious mental illness find and maintain meaningful employment.

We’re proud of what we do.
Despite the high unemployment rate for persons with moderate to severe mental illness (between 75-90%), some 40 employees have maintained and extended their employment for over 4 years. As a result of employment, employees self-decide to severely reduce Social Assistance Dependency.

Awards and Community Recognition
Our Organization’s contributions to environmentalism and employment have been recognized as providing leadership in the communities we serve. In 2011, Ever Green Recycling was awarded the unique “Path of Distinction” Award by the Newfoundland & Labrador Employers’ Council. In 2010, Ever Green Recycling was recognized for “Most Hirings” under the Partners In Workplace Inclusion Program.

Our human resources leadership has led to us working with community organizations such as, Stella Burry Community Services, MacMorran Community Centre, Partners for Workplace Inclusion and the Autism Society of Newfoundland & Labrador, to develop employment opportunities for individuals from their training programs.

Ever Green Recycling has been profiled in the Canadian Social Enterprises Guide. In addition, Memorial University’s Health Research Unit and its Anti-Poverty Committee are studying our success with the hopes of finding health and welfare cost savings for the province.
