Orlando, FL – Construction firms and municipalities now have a source for recycling waste, which until recently was destined for the local landfills.

Located in Winter Garden, FL, the EarthGuard Recycling Center is currently open to select customers and scheduled to expand its services to the general public in April 2010.

The recycling center is particularly important to the success of LEED construction projects, which are required to verify construction debris recycling. LEED, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is the sustainable building rating system created by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).

The EarthGuard Recycling Center is conveniently co-located at West Orange Environmental, an existing construction debris disposal site. We are very excited about what this means to our community, explains Tony Wibbeler, CEO of EarthGuard Recycling. The construction community has been asking for a convenient recycling center in Orlando that can deliver verifiable LEED credits, and that is exactly what we have built. We are in a very unique position of being able to recycle dispose of residual material in a single facility the ability to you may want to change and/and or the punctuation attract investors who want to impact sustainable building practices in Orlando. We believe our facilities offer Central Florida a responsible alternative for a significant percentage of its waste stream.

Construction debris accounts for nearly 25% of solid waste in Florida, and 95% of it that is recyclable. In addition to offering end-users a valuable service, EarthGuard Recycling is creating jobs as well as markets for valuable materials such as concrete, mulch, scrap metal and cardboard.

EarthGuard Recycling is a subsidiary of Orange County Environmental, LLC which also owns and operates landfills in the Orlando area, (Mt Dora Disposal and Fill in Mt. Dora, Golden Gem Road Landfill in Apopka and West Orange Environmental in Winter Garden), and multiple waste collection companies.
