Our History

We live, breathe and think recycling, and because of that we can provide you with unparalleled service, expertise, and passion… yes, recycling passion.

35 Green Years!

Our history of helping make your recycling easier and more beneficial started over 35 years ago. Our founder and CEO, Scott Kuhnen, set out to make recycling (a relatively unheard of thing back then) not just something to consider doing, but something people wanted to do.  Scott started by erecting a simple, wooden roadside newspaper deposit bin.  Since those humble beginnings, we have worked tirelessly to fulfill that original vision and as a result have become one of California’s largest and fastest growing recyclers. Even with all the growth we’ve enjoyed, we still pride ourselves most on the foundation we were built on — honest, friendly and dependable service!

Our people are our secret (shh, don’t tell our competitors!)

As our General Manager, David Kuhnen likes to say, “We simply have a make-it-happen attitude, and we never underestimate the value of plain hard work.” A Make-it-happen attitude is what makes Recycling Industries unique. What truly sets us apart is the problem solving spirit our people bring to every aspect of our company, especially our customer relationships.  From our sorters to our drivers to our executive team, we’re always looking for ways to help your recycling go smoother, more efficiently, more profitable, and hopefully a little more fun along the way. (Meet our team here)

Leading the way, by following sound principles

We’ve never once set our sights on being the biggest recycler in the Sacramento, Yuba-Sutter area, we’ve only aimed for one thing: leading the way to better recycling service, and that has led to our remarkable growth.  Recycling Industries has the rare distinction of being the fastest growing recycler and largest exporter of recyclable paper fiber in the area, and we owe it all to our loyal customers and our insistence on the quality they’ve come to expect from their recycling partner.  Looking for a recycler with integrity?
