Recycling Businesses See Expansion

Two independent small businesses are taking advantage of consumers desire for more recycling and expanding their presence in their local communities while creating new jobs and economic opportunities.

In South Carolina, Recleim, is building a new operations facility for electronics waste and unwanted appliance recycling. Located in Aiken County, the plant will be hiring upwards of two hundred new employees and will be working closely with municipal governments and other businesses to enhance and improve recycling in their areas of specialty.

In Pennsylvania, PGA, a local plastics recycling outfit specializing in PET, PVC, and polyethylene, is also feeling the need to increase their operations and will be moving to a larger facility within its existing community of White Haven. It is expected that PGA will increase employees from the current number of thirteen to over forty within the next few years. PGA started in 2006 as a two person business and has steadily grown over their years in operation.
