EnviroLog Company, a leading eco-friendly, consumer products and recycling company, will open a new recycling and manufacturing facility in Glendale, Arizona. The project is expected to create 50 jobs.
Located at 7676 N. Glen Harbor Boulevard, the 76,156-square-foot facility will be dedicated to recycling waxed cardboard boxes (WOCC) and manufacturing its environmentally-friendly, EnviroLog products. The company plans to work directly with produce leaders, grocery retailers and recyclers to recycle large volumes of WOCC from Arizona, California and all of the western United States.
“During our search, Arizona stood out for a variety of reasons including having a very supportive business-friendly climate, strong talent pool of skilled labor, and proximity to major transportation routes,” said Ross McRoy, President and Founder of EnviroLog. “Glendale in particular is ideally situated between major highways and its location allows us to better serve our retail and recycling partners on the West Coast and in the Midwest. We look forward to helping Arizona reach its sustainability goals.”
Headquartered in Fitzgerald, Georgia, EnviroLog is the largest recycler of WOCC in North America and the third largest producer of manufactured firelogs in the U.S. For the past 18 years the company has worked with retailers to reduce their environmental impact and start them on a path toward zero waste by recycling their WOCC, which is typically used to transport fruits and vegetables to grocery stores and restaurants.
