ReCommunity Recycling has acquired two Great Lakes Recycling (GLR) facilities in Michigan.
The Charlotte, N.C.-based recycler purchased GLR’s recycling and recovery facilities in Huron Township and Roseville for an undisclosed amount.
ReCommunity already operates Michigan recycling and recovery facilities in Ann Arbor, Saginaw and Southfield. The two latest additions bring ReCommunity’s total number of material recovery facilities (MRFs) to 20, with one transfer station. The company operates in 10 states, it said in a news release.
At full capacity, the two new facilities will recover material that will prevent more than 400,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide-equivalent greenhouse gases being emitted annually.
“We are pleased to join with our new community partners to bring the ‘recovery revolution’ to Huron Township and Roseville,” said James Bohlig, chief executive officer of ReCommunity. “ReCommunity is a company with a purpose.”
“Selling was the farthest thing from our minds when we initially met with ReCommunity earlier this year, “ said Sandy Rosen, chief executive officer of GLR. “But once we got to know them and understand what they’re about, we quickly became excited about the opportunity it presents for us, our employees and overall recycling in southeast Michigan.”
