OKLAHOMA CITY -- Goodwill and Chesapeake have teamed up to go even greener.

On Monday, the companies unveiled the Chesapeake Energy Environmental Recycling Center.
The new 40,000 square foot facility is where millions of pounds of waste will be re-sold instead of going into a landfill.

"This is a convenient, easy way to ensure materials coming out of your closet, or that old computer, that desk lamp or that stack of cardboard is going not to landfill," said Heather Rennebohm, Goodwill Industries Of Central Oklahoma, CEO.

Rennebohm said they expect to resell 10 million pounds of materials per year and create 50 new jobs for disabled Oklahomans.
