ReCommunity Opens N.Y. Recycling Facility

ReCommunity Recycling has opened a single-stream recycling facility in Beacon, N.Y.

The Charlotte, N.C.-based ReCommunity said in a news release it invested $7.5 million in the 52,000-sq.-ft. material recovery facility (MRF). The facility willprocess  plastics, newspapers, junk mail, magazines, office paper, cardboard, tin, aluminum, and glass food and beverage containers. The company expects to collect material throughout the Northeast, including the greater Hudson Valley counties of Dutchess, Ulster, Sullivan, Orange and Putnam and parts of southwest Connecticut.

 At full capacity the ReCommunity recycling facility will recover material that will  save 122,955 cubic yards of landfill space and prevent 261,186 metric tons of carbon dioxide-equivalent greenhouse gases from being emitted annually.

“ReCommunity is committed to what we call ‘Leading the Recovery Revolution,’ and we are happy to bring our services, along with new green jobs, to the Greater Hudson Valley,” said ReCommunity CEO Jim Bohlig.
