The center is operated as a rehabilitative inmate work program and is unique in its ability to provide this labor intensive service by utilizing inmate labor. 

The net cost of operating the Recycling Center is funded by the participating towns with Coös County Department of Corrections providing administrative oversight, inmate labor, and supervision by a Community Corrections Corporal and Corrections work supervisors.
