Our crews at O’Brien’s Moving & Storage take great pride in providing courteous and dependable relocation services to our neighbors across Pennsylvania and New Jersey. We also understand that those stellar moving solutions produce a fair share of recyclable waste—from old cardboard boxes and shredded stretch wrap to packing tape rolls and discarded metals.
Recycling and Reducing Waste for Our Environment
Environmental priorities have changed quite a bit since our founding in 1928; back when O’Brien’s had one truck to its name, our founders didn’t need to consider renewable resources as much, but we’ve made it a true mission in the present day. As part of our commitment to this mission, the O’Brien’s team recycles tens of thousands of pounds of mixed papers, cardboard, corrugated cartons, and PVC plastics each year.
Doing Our Part to Be Tons of Help
We recycle whatever we can, whenever possible. Working with local recycling companies over the years has helped ensure we are maximizing our efforts to reuse materials and reduce waste.
- Since we started recycling reports in 2005, we took more than 249 tons – or 499,600 pounds – of paper, cardboard, metal and other materials to recycling centers.
- In the past year, we brought a record amount of more than 47 tons of materials to be recycled. With growing selection of reusable materials and our efforts to reuse items several times over, we can continue to make greater strides in being green.
