Our Environmental Policy
“We try to do the right thing, no matter what, and rarely turn anything down.”- Billy, owner
We send absolutely nothing to the landfill. It’s recycled, repurposed, reused, or in the event that an item isn’t recyclable (like a pressed wood-glue product that someone won’t take) we exhaust all other outlets: cabinet makers, woodworkers, shops, craigslist, goodwill, salvation army, artists. If that still doesn’t work, we use it for fuel at a trash-to-steam partner like Covanta.
Why should I bother recycling?
Salvaging materials uses less energy than recycling and reduces the consumption of new materials. The world’s growing population has increased the demand for materials. Recycling keeps our resources in use for as long as possible. This reduces the amount of virgin materials that need to be mined, harvested and processed. It’s all a part of the big picture: decrease energy use and pollution.
Decomposition of materials in landfills produces toxic gases and leachate that is released into the environment. The EPA states that landfills are the second largest producer of methane emissions in the United States.
We think recycling is a better idea!
Billy worked every summer as a laborer for a Philly demolition company. He graduated from Towson University and then led the family dream of creating the Philadelphia Recycling Co. As the owner and COO, he still gets his hands dirty every day and finds ways to innovate recycling and exceed customer expectations.
