Conshohocken Recycling Purchased by Rail Firm

Conshohocken Recycling & Rail Transfer LLC has been purchased by Regional Rail LLC for an undisclosed amount.

The construction and demolition (C&D) debris transfer station in Conshohocken, Pa., covers 25,000 square feet and is served by rail, the Kennett Square, Pa.-based Regional Rail said in a news release.

Regional Rail said the high throughput transfer station on a 12-acre site also has a fleet of refurbished, high-capacity gondola cars for transporting the unrecyclable portion of the C&D debris from the greater Philadelphia area to landfills served by rail.

“The recycling business in general has continued to grow despite the lackluster economy and continued housing slowdown,” said Regional Rail Vice President Al Sauer, “and we feel this facility is ideally located to serve this market both now and in the future.”

Regional Rail President, Bob Parker said the move reflects the company’s intent to look at rail-related deals.
