Ya Ya Ya...You've heard it, but we can prove it.
It seems like all companies these days can claim to be green in anyway they can fabricate. They come up with a far fetched and stretched reason why their business is potentially "green."
Our sorting and recycling facility is far superior to any other junk removal company in this local area. We take recycling, repurposing, upcycling, disposal, and salvage seriously! These principles are what Mike built this business upon; after all he started this company by garbage picking the streets of North Ridgeville when he was 16 years old.
Here is a list of EXACTLY what we do with all the materials we remove, where it goes, and why:
Garbage- sorted through by hand for recyclables, then properly disposed at a professional facility in which the garbage gets incinerated into heat, which powers steam generators, producing electricity! From YOUR garbage!
Plastics- taken to a professional plastics facility to be sorted, shredded into raw material, melted, and reused.
Metals- taken to a professional scrap yard where it will be ground up into a pure form, melted down, and sent to various manufacturers to be used in a wide variety of state wide industries.
Construction Debris- piles of assorted construction waste is sorted and processed by hand to salvage all building materials that can be used again or in a different way. Glass, old lumber, and architectural salvage will all be reprocessed and re-purposed and gets donated to organizations like "Habitat for Humanity."
Concrete- broken concrete chunks are crushed down further to make recycled stone. This will be used as bases for roads, driveways, and parking lots.
Bricks- bricks are used in combination with other dirt for what is called a "hard fill" used to fill up large holes and voids in various properties around the local area. Bricks can also be crushed and reprocessed with the broken concrete and become part of the recycle stone mixtures for road foundations.
Yard Waste- all plant and organic yard materials either get made into mulch or high grade wood chips along with all the other wood scraps and branches. This type of material can also be processed into compost where it will be mixed with a multitude of fine wood chips, manure, clean brown cardboard, and leaves!
Furniture- old furniture can take 2 paths depending on condition 1) Destruction or 2) Donation. Depending on the condition of the furniture, it will either get ground up along with other wood items, or the furniture will get re-purposed by donations.
Electronics- sorted and properly recycled, NO LANDFILLS!
