Thumb Industries, Inc. started its recycling program in Winter 2009. Since the inception of our recycling program we have kept more than 11 million tons of waste out of local landfills. The demand for recycling has increased dramatically since the inception of our program.  To better serve our community, we offer easy, convenient ways for you to recycle.  You can drop off your recyclables during staffed hours or utilize our 24 hour drop off trailers.  We also offer recycling education and services to our local schools, and offer tours of our facility.  

The Recycling Center currently accepts clean tin & aluminium, cardboard, mixed residential mail (MRM), paper and newsprint.   We also accept plastics labeled with a #1 or #2 (soap containers, water bottles, etc) providing they have been rinsed/cleaned out.   Thumb Industries, Inc. also offers shredding services that are available to the public and businesses for a small fee.
