B.D.S.I. Recycling Center, a division of A.J. Blosenski, Inc., was formed in 1994 as a MRF (materials recovery facility) for the recyclables collected on our curbside routes. As a dual stream, clean MRF, we sort and process the materials and bale the product for transportation. B.D.S.I Recycling Center
It is then shipped to an end-user who will reuse the product in their manufacturing process.
Within recent years, the dynamics of the recycling industry has further developed and its efforts have significantly increased the education of environmental awareness. Consumer reactions have increased the amount of recycled product, keeping these materials from entering the waste stream.
In direct response to our customers and environment, B.D.S.I. has undergone recent expansion investments:
Horizontal baler which enables us to bale all our different recycled products
100 ton scale and scale house offices
Safety training and conference center
Additional loading docks
Renovated employee locker rooms

“HOW TO” ON RECYCLING If you do not rinse out glass, cans and plastics they will be labeled contaminated when they get to the recycling facility and won't be recycled but put in regular trash stream. Please remove caps from bottles, and DO not include any plastic bags. Recyclables are not to be placed in plastic bags, as the plastic bag will contaminate the stream.

THOUGHT PROVOKING RECYCLING STATS
ALUMINUM Recycling 1 pound of steel or aluminum saves enough energy for a 60 watt light bulb to run for over 1 day. This equates to enough energy to heat and light 18,000,000 homes in 1 year.
PLASTIC Americans use 2,500,000 plastic bottles every hour! Recycling plastic saves twice as much energy as burning it in an incinerator.
GLASS The energy saved from recycling 1 glass bottle can run a compact fluorescent bulb for 20 hours. Recycling also results in 20% less air pollution and 50% less water pollution than making a new bottle from raw materials.
PAPER Each ton of recycled paper can save 17 trees, 380 gallons of oil, 3 cubic yards of landfill space, 4000 kilowatts of energy, and 7000 gallons of water. This represents an energy savings of 64%, water savings of 58%, and 60 lbs less air pollution.
