Recycling solutions for manufacturing and heavy industrial plants can be a true challenge, but we have solutions

Due to a nearly limitless range and variety of products and materials, the enormous volume of scrap and reject materials that manufacturers and industrial plants generate, and the balance that manufacturing facilities must strike between rigorous production demands and equally rigorous safety and environmental standards. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to recycling for the manufacturing industry.

That’s where we come in. While you’re focused on creating high-quality products, we can focus on designing an efficient, custom recycling program that makes the most of your waste stream.


How Recover Can Help

Our Recycling Solutions for Manufacturing Boost the Bottom Line

As a manufacturer, it’s crucial that your recycling solution is seamless and fully integrated with your existing operations. We have years of experience providing individualized recycling solutions for the manufacturing industry; we tailor our services to your manufacturing facility, and your production process, adding maximum value to your bottom line by cutting costs and increasing efficiency. Whether it’s strategically placed recycling equipment designed to fit your manufacturing process, custom designed material handling flows, or other logistics services, we take the guesswork out of your complicated scrap solutions.

Ultimately, our goal is to make recycling second-nature for your organization. So simple that you don’t even think about it—because a recycling plan that is overly complicated or difficult to execute won’t last. Through our partnership, you can lower both the financial and environmental costs of acquiring raw materials.

Together, we can develop a savvy industrial waste managementand recycling solution to minimize waste and increase revenue.

We can help you create a plan to recycle:

Metal Recycling

Metal is one of the most common byproducts of manufacturing and heavy industry. We accept aluminum scrap, used steel drums, and more.

Plastic Recyclables

Plastics are easy to recycle and nearly as ubiquitous as metals in manufacturing. We can recycle and resell all industrial grades, baled or boxed.

Pallet Recycling

Wood and plastic pallets have a long shelf life. We collect and sell high-quality pallets for reuse as well as older or broken pallets for recycling.

Reusable Materials

Often, manufacturers generate reusable materials designed for roll suspension and protection, such as spools, cores, tubes, and endboards. We resell reusable resources to keep your costs low.


Manufacturers and industrial plants produce many unique products using many unique materials. If you have an industrial byproduct, we’ll let you know if it’s recyclable and help you find a buyer for it.

We can help you create a plan to recycle:

Waste byproducts associated with manufacturing and industrial activities can have a significant effect on the environment if they aren’t recycled or properly disposed of. Solid industrial waste is expensive to haul and fills the local landfill, decreasing the lifespan of these areas by taking up space that could be used by other, non-recyclable waste. If not done correctly, burning solid industrial waste, such as pallets and other treated lumber, can pollute the air, the water supply, and other natural resources.

Solutions such as source reduction and recycling aim to minimize or even eliminate the impact of industrial waste on your environment, and your community. Changing the way wastes are produced and treated creates a more sustainable environment while also minimizing production costs and maximizing the functionality you gain from your raw materials.

Metal recycling, in particular, can prove valuable to manufacturing facilities and industrial plants. Metals are a common byproduct of manufacturing—and one that’s easy to turn into a usable material for new production. In fact, many scrap metals are endlessly recyclable, meaning that they can be reused again and again without a loss in integrity. Plus, recycling metal is not only less expensive, but also requires less energy during production, reducing the energy requirements of manufacturing new products by 60% or more. For these reasons, most steel production plants use over 70% recycled steel in their manufacturing processes. Whether buying or selling, recycling scrap metal makes sense for your business.
