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.
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 fforts 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:

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.
Americans use 2,500,000 plastic bottles every hour! Recycling plastic saves twice as much energy as burning it in an incinerator.
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.
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.
