Biographical / Historical

The Duluth Metropolitan Recycling Center began in 1970 as interest in environmental matters increased. Working as a nonprofit organization along with the Duluth Sheltered Workshop, it employed people with disabilities. Its purpose was to recycle cans, bottles, and paper. On October 17, 1973, the center was gutted by fire. Indebtedness and unsuccessful relocation efforts resulted in proposed dissolution of the Center at a July 23, 1974 meeting called for that purpose.
