We remove a lot of recycling loads from projects, and one of the facilities who receives our recyclables is Sun Recycling in Beltsville, Maryland. They are conveniently located close to many of our projects which means we save our clients’ money on fuel and time.
Long lines at recycling facilities are not a hauler’s best friend! Sun Services Operations Manager Johnny Rich pointed out, “We can set ourselves apart by getting in and getting out.”
To that end, Sun’s goal is to have a turnaround time of 15 minutes. In order to help facilitate that goal, they use their own employees to open and close the doors of each roll off, dump truck, and trailer, meaning our Selective drivers don’t have to leave the cab of their truck.
Sun handles roughly 600 to 800 tons of material each day and recently expanded its facility to help increase the efficiency and production of processing of recyclables.
They will process all materials, separating recyclables including concrete, brick and block, metal, and wood. Non-recyclables are shredded and taken to a waste to energy facility.
The wood they separate is ground down to a mulch, accumulating to 250 to 400 yards per week.
We rely on Sun’s excellent service to help us get the job done. Rich said customer service “is something we consistently reiterate. Do anything and everything for the customer.” We see that every day and thank Sun for its valued partnership!
