Commercial paper and cardboard recycling are available for both large and small businesses. We are also the largest independent Styrofoam™/EPS foam recycling centers in the United States.

Business recycling of recyclable materials is managed through our best practices throughout our company. In fact, our recycling plant in Elkhart, Indiana, has the most advanced technology and machinery to support environmental solutions for our planet. If your area requires mandatory commercial recycling, you can trust our experience and waste management solutions to assist with your solid waste management program.

Business Services That Make Sense for You

Businesses with large amounts of recyclables can drop off their items at our facility or we can pick up your recyclables. We accept recyclable items from commercial customers in both smaller quantities up to a semi-trailer full of material. You can also have your recycling items shipped to us through a few programs.

Items collected for cardboard or paper recycling may cost your business nothing. In fact, based on market value, we may pay you for these items by weight. If your business needs assistance choosing the right size baler or compactor for cardboard recyclables, contact us today.
From balers to compactors, we offer commercial recycling options with our new and used equipment through lease, lease to purchase, and purchase arrangements. Call or email us to discuss the right equipment for your business. (link to recycling equipment sales page)

Cardboard and Paper Recycling

Cardboard recycling includes cardboard that is loose or baled and may have tape, staples, or labels on the cardboard.
Office paper products include newspapers, books, and related fibers, and can be collected from your business or dropped off at our facility. 
Recycling right through our waste management program means less waste in our nation’s landfills. The increased demand for shipped items means cardboard is now widely used by individuals, businesses, and commercial industries.
Solid waste materials such as paper and cardboard are processed by our facility, then sent to paper mills to be made into new cardboard boxes.

Styrofoam™/EPS Foam Recycling

Styrofoam™/EPS foam is non-biodegradable, so it lasts forever in landfills. That’s why we use the most advanced technology and machinery to sort, clean, and process EPS foam.
As the largest independent Styrofoam™/EPS foam recyclers in the U.S., we work with businesses and industries that receive large amounts of EPS foam. We collect foam from the RV industry, manufacturing, logistics and shipping, pharmaceutical, and food industries.

Recycling Benefits To Know

Recycling services conserve energy.
Fact: It takes less energy to create new items from recycled materials than it does to create new products from raw materials.

Recycling creates more jobs than a landfill operation.
Fact: On a per-ton basis, sorting and processing recyclables supports 10 times as many jobs as landfilling or incineration.

Recycling is often the least expensive waste management method.
Fact: Many of our programs allow you to generate revenue for something you would have sent to the landfill as trash.

Drop-Off Options

Local businesses can drop off all recycling items we accept at our facility. There are outdoor bins on our property for recyclable materials like paper products, cardboard boxes, Styrofoam™/EPS foam products, and plastics. There is no charge to drop off recyclable materials.
