Arnold Company’s manufacturing facility in Trenton, IL initiates a new recycling project with St. Louis-based customized recycling and service solutions provider Always Green Recycling.
About Always Green Recycling
Always Green Recycling (AGR) offers their recycling partners full-service, single-stream recycling in the greater St. Louis region. This process eliminates the need to separate materials and saves them from being transferred to landfills. Established in 2008, this woman and veteran-owned business now recycles and composts more than 700 tons of materials every month.
“It is our mission to provide the best services to our recycle partners. We will challenge current processes and find the best possible ways to protect our Earth’s resources. We will strive to find new ways to divert products from landfills and provide a safer, cleaner and greener world for generations to come.” AGR Mission Statement
The Benefits of Recycling
AGR emphasizes the comprehensive process of “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” to further eliminate waste in local communities. When trash is diverted from landfills through recycling, pollution from harmful chemicals and greenhouse gases can be reduced.
In addition, recycling generates significantly less waste and preserves existing space for landfills, saves energy, protects local wildlife, and provides raw materials for new products.
Teaming Up with Arnold Company for a New Recycling Project
An increase in cardboard waste inspired the team at Arnold Company to launch a recycling program. Headquartered in a rural location, the options remained limited until the team spotted an Always Green Recycling truck nearby at a local restaurant. The partnership kicked off in early September. Now every two weeks, a two-yard container will allow the team to recycle cardboard, cans, bottles, and plastics.
The Arnold Company team is thrilled with the opportunity to reduce waste and make a positive impact on the environment!
