Responsible Waste Disposal

How much material does OEW Recycling send to the landfill?

Very little! The recycle and reuse rate of the material we receive is well over 98%, meaning less than 2% goes to the landfill. We refer to this as our disposal rate. Our goal is to reduce our annual disposal rate to less than 1%. Partnering with OEW Recycling allows us to pass these environmental benefits on to your company!


Are there other resources available that accept items that OEW Recycling does not process?

Yes. We assist all of our customers in identifying processing sources for their waste materials – even if we do not do the processing ourselves. In the event your business requires a service we do not provide, one of our recycling specialists will assist in locating an appropriate resource.


Does OEW Recycling accept materials that it cannot recycle?

As a rule we minimize collecting materials that we cannot recycle. However, almost all of our customers depend on us to dispose of some items. Knowing this ahead of time enables us to provide collection containers for these non-recyclable items. Customers separate the recyclable and non-recyclable materials, then OEW Recycling can dispose of them properly at a cost effective rate.

OEW Recycling helps people change their throwaway habits by providing ecologically friendly, profitable, and easy ways to start making a positive impact on the environment.

Industrial facilities generate waste materials from their manufacturing, quality assurance, and packaging processes. Tons of recyclable materials are generated daily.
