We Recycle. Do you?

United States Recycling, Inc. began operations in 1985 as an independently owned collector, processor, and marketer of recyclable material. An emphasis on quality service and long-term relationships enabled the company to grow to its current state: a full-service packer, broker, and exporter handling the entire range of recyclable materials, shipping to paper mills and other end users all across the United States, Canada, and the rest of the world.

Our 50-acre facility is located in Philadelphia, PA, and is easily accessible via multiple major highways.

Document Destruction

We can offer the most comprehensive and cost-efficient secure document destruction service because we share our site with Newman & Company, Inc., a paperboard mill that has been in operation for almost 90 years.

Most document destruction services shred sensitive materials and then sell the resulting fibers to a paper mill for consumption. We are able to avoid the extremely high cost of mobile shredding trucks and high-volume shredding facilities by destroying documents directly in Newman's hydropulpers. Certificates of destruction are available.
