About Us

Our mission is the conservation of natural resources through education and management of all aspects of solid and hazardous waste, recycling, and overuse of resources.

About Us

Formed in October of 1997, the Environmental Co-op (the Co-op) is the result of an ongoing effort by concerned officials and citizens of Kaufman County to take an active and positive stance on the problem of disposing of household wastes of an increasing population with increased concerns about the environment.

The Co-op is a 501c(3), member-owned non-profit environmental business that specializes in setting up waste disposal programs in Kaufman County. With no landfills in the county and diminishing space in nearby landfills, the problem of municipal solid waste is getting more serious every day. The Co-op's primary focus is to provide education on issues such as solid waste reduction, composting, recycling and resource conservation.

Our mission is the conservation of natural resources through education and management of all aspects of solid and hazardous waste, recycling, and overuse of resources.
