OSP- Recycling (Olive Street Processing)
Olive Street Processing, LLC. is focused on and committed to providing the expertise and support needed to create “green communities.” Our services include baler, open container, and segmented service, as well as shredding, cart and tote collection, and stationary and self-contained compactors. We offer the best options to make sure every business we partner with is eco-friendly.
Olive Street’s single stream recycling center is the bedrock of our commitment to cultivating zero waste, green communities. Over a period of more than 25 years, we have processed over 100 million tons of recyclable materials, including cardboard, cartons, plastic, and paper. Much of the waste from the D.C. metro area passes through Olive Street’s facilities on their way to being recycled and re-purposed.
Skinquarter Recycling C&D Landfill
Americans generate approximately 1.7 tons of solid waste per person per year…250 million annual tons. This includes both municipal solid waste (MSW), i.e. regular trash and construction and demolition debris (C&D). C&D is defined as waste generated from a construction or demolition project. This particular waste stream has a high percentage of inert material (material that will not decompose); e.g. dirt, rock, concrete, brick, gypsum (drywall), metal and paper.
WB is in the final stages of opening the Skinquarter C&D landfill. This is the last step in our plan to become a fully integrated waste and recycling company. WB has always been and will continue to be committed to recycling and minimizing the amount of waste we send to landfills…this is called “waste diversion.” However, as with all modern solid waste plans, landfilling remains one critical component of the process.
Skinquarter LF is a promising opportunity for WB to show that landfilling can be different…As part of our recycling efforts we think of our landfill as a resource that must be preserved and just another asset that is to be used up as quickly as possible… Consequently, we intend to recycle, recover, divert and reuse as much material as possible so that we do not use up our valuable space too quickly.
