Urban League of Essex County – ThriftWORKS

“ThriftWORKS Community Recycling Employment Program provides urgently needed skills, training, and earning opportunities for low and unskilled job seekers. Many in our community need and want jobs, but have multiple barriers to employment.

ThriftWORKS provides a supportive environment for those looking for a fresh start to learn, earn and access good job opportunities. As a ThriftWORKS team member, they learn marketable skills and get real-world experience in facets of the customer service, merchandising and retail industries.

Unlike some other recycling enterprises, ThriftWORKS creates jobs right here in our local neighborhoods. As an added benefit, thousands of items are removed from the waste stream – providing environmental benefits for our communities.”
