Thursday 7.9 - Urban Ore Live Virtual Tour!
Be a part of Sustainability in Action! Join our Eco-Tour!
Join BAGT for our bi-weekly Eco-Talk event as we take a virtual tour around Urban Ore Inc. with Max Wechsler, the operations manager with a passion for resourceful living.
Max grew up surrounded by a spare metal junkyard on the outskirts of Philadelphia. He moved to the Bay in 2010, and his first job after college was as a salvager at Urban Ore, the reuse retail and recycling Ecopark in Berkeley, where every day at the transfer station, he rescued tons of materials from going to the landfill so that they could be either recycled or sold for reuse. Over the years, he started up an electronics recycling company called Roots Recycling, volunteered with SurfRider Foundation SF Chapter's anti-litter programs, and in 2016, interned with the SF Department of Environment's Zero Waste program, which he sees as a spiritual path with inherent economic and cultural value; he then soon returned to Urban Ore, where he is currently the Operations Manager.
