The largest independent waste disposal provider in Arizona celebrated the opening of its new $13 million recycling center here last week.
Right Away Disposal (RAD) is under contract to pick up trash and recyclables for residential customers in Florence, Queen Creek, Eloy, Apache Junction and other areas of Pinal County
Until about six weeks ago, subcontractors handled recyclables for RAD.
“We were bringing our material to other locations and they were sorting it. Now we’re able to do it ourselves. We make sure it’s done to the level we want. ... We don’t have to rely on other companies to get the recycling done that we need,” said Jeremy Takas, RAD president.
