2013 Residual Rate
Our company processed just over 127,537 tons of material in 2013 and of that material only 2.89% was downgraded to garbage. A 2.89% residual rate is pretty great (especially since we've entered into the single stream processing arena in 2013.. which typically leads to higher residual numbers). Residual means the material that was downgraded to garbage due to contamination from the original recycling source, during separation and processing, or transport)
We are so proud of our customers who do a great job providing high quality raw material and our staff who excel at what they do.
