Kala, The Recycling Zone

“Employees enjoy coming to work and being able to joke around with one another, have a sense of trust, and know that their involvement matters and is acknowledged.”

Kala's role at The Recycling Zone involves assisting with unloading vehicles, sorting household chemicals, operating the forklift, problem solving and decision making. Kala loves that she gets to be directly involved with the recycling process. "The Recycling Zone itself has helped over 300,000 pounds of oil, latex based paint, and cleaning supplies into reuse material in 2016."

Kala joined Gopher Resource initially in 2011 as a part-time worker while attending college and is proud to have been a part of such a team-based culture. "What excites me most about working for Gopher Resource is the fact that I get to be a part of an amazing company that continues to grow every year, along with helping their employees grow along with it."

“Gopher Resource encourages their employees to be committed, successful, to share ideas with one another and the company, to look out for one another, and to embrace change where they think that it is needed.”
