CalRecycle staff viewed the iRoutes Solutions System in September 2011 and approved the sole-source purchase of a nine-unit system for the Sacramento Regional Conservation Corps shortly thereafter.
iRoutes was developed as a joint project between Sustainability for All and the Sacramento Regional Conservation Corps. Sustainability for All is a "research and development" organization designed to strengthen and advance the conservation corps movement through innovation, collaboration and information sharing. Operated by several conservation corps veterans, SfA hopes to inspire collaborative learning and distributed action to achieve a prosperous and sustainable conservation corps movement.Learn More
The creators of iRoutes have hands on operational experience managing conservation corps recycling programs. We understand your world and we are committed to making it better. Part of Sustainability for All's mission is to strengthen the conservation corps movement. We have been doing this since our inception in 2008 and we will continue to do this long into the future.
Corps are being asked to do more recycling with less funding. Limited resources mean production increases can best be made by increasing efficiency and effectiveness. Having run conservation corps recycling programs in the past, we know first hand the challenges that staff and corpsmembers have with operating a recycling program. Based on our experience, we designed iRoutes with multi-function capabilities using leading-edge technologies to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of conservation corps recycling programs. iRoutes allows corps to harness the power of data and information management to increase production, safety, environmental savings, risk management and earned income.
