Our community of veterans and eco-conscious citizens expands more every day. Help us spread the word and grow our family!

Expanding Our Mission

With your help and support, we can expand into new territories and go global by 2023. Be a part of the impact!

Empowering Our Veterans

Veterans have served their time. RFV allows them to recycle their leadership skills with our Eco Warrior Program and give back to those who signed the line. 

Sponsorships & Partners

Join our mission by bringing your community of employees out for a company cleanup!

What We Stand For

We promote natural conservation by empowering veterans to clean our communities. By hosting cleanups in high-impacted areas, we unite local residents, businesses, active service members, and veterans under shared values of sustainability and ecological impact.

Cleanups are an incredible opportunity for volunteers to network, share stories, mentor, and have fun with people from all walks of life. While our primary goals focus on cleaning, making an impact, and connecting with local communities, our volunteers and Eco Warriors have found jobs, obtained community service hours, and received Letters of Appreciation (L.O.A.) through these events.

Meet the
Co-Founders

Kyle Hansen & Andrew Levin

Kyle and Andrew Co-Founded Recycle For Veterans to not only to serve their communities, but to also continue serving their country by helping the veterans who serve every day. RFV was founded on the principle to give back to the community and environment in a different way they previously served before.

Kyle Hansen grew up in Orange County, CA and enlisted in the United States Marine Corps directly out of high school. After serving for almost five years, he was medically retired due to a severe training accident at Camp Pendleton, CA. After the accident, Kyle realized his military career would be over, but he still wanted to find ways to serve his community.

Andrew Levin was born and raised in Orange County. After high school, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps where he served as an infantry machine gunner and also went on to be a scout swimmer. Andrew quickly realized his passion for the environment after spending countless hours in nature and the ocean. Once separated from the Marine Corps after serving four years, Andrew knew that he wanted to continue finding ways to serve his country and his community.

"Alone, our impact is small; together, we can do so much more."

Eco Warriors have an opportunity at making an impact on a global scale. We encourage those who want to give back at a larger scale to apply to the program as the impacts made on this level will last a lifetime.

Operation Africa

Our Eco Warrior Program drives our mission and operations. 

Our Eco Warrior program offers a wide variety of benefits and community resources for active duty service members/veterans/reservists wanting to expand their network and serve in a equally important way. 

Becoming an RFV Eco Warrior means you are taking the extra step into continuing your service and taking on more responsibility within the team.

You will have the opportunity to help execute cleanups in your region.

Our goal is to expand our operations in the upcoming years, and we cannot do this without the support of our Eco Warriors.
