The North Davidson Garbage Service has expanded to include recycling pickup and processing. The decision to add recycling to the company’s service was made in response to the county’s growing population and use of more space in the landfill.
The new 54,000-square-foot recycling center is located on Old U.S. Highway 52 in Welcome, N.C. With the ability to process 50 tons of recyclables per hour, the facility is the largest privately owned recycling facility in North Carolina. The “Green Machine” is the 250-foot long, 22-foot high materials sorting machine that will process the materials coming into the facility. The facility can process glass, plastic, paper, cardboard, tin and aluminum. The facility will also have an electronics recycling drop-off center.
North Davidson Garbage Service customers will receive the new recycling collection at no added cost and can expect the new recycling bins to be issued within six months.
