GLENDALE, Ariz., July 28, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — EnviroLog Company, LLC, a leading eco-friendly, consumer products and recycling company is pleased to announce that it will open a new recycling and manufacturing facility in Glendale, Arizona this summer. Located at 7676 N. Glen Harbor Boulevard, the new 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.
Headquartered in Fitzgerald, Georgia (approximately 175 miles south of Atlanta), 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. EnviroLog uses the recycled WOCC to manufacture its earth-friendly firelogs that burn cleaner than wood (emitting 50 percent less greenhouse gasses, 30 percent less particulate emissions and 80 percent less carbon dioxide) while also providing 50 percent more heat per pound. This recycling process saves tens of thousands of trees from being used as firewood and millions of pounds of WOCC from going into landfills every year. To date, EnviroLog has worked with over 100 partners throughout North America and diverted over nearly half a billion pounds of WOCC from landfills.
