Iowa manufacturers and others generating large volumes of plastic and paper have a new, local recycling option. Quincy Recycle is opening its sixth Midwestern recycling facility in Marion, Iowa, just outside of Cedar Rapids.
“The Cedar Rapids area was a natural location for us,” said Bryan Stokes, owner and president of Quincy Recycle. “Our plants in Chicago, St. Louis, Quincy IL, and the Milwaukee area already service manufacturers in surrounding areas. The Cedar Rapids plant now reduces freight costs and expands our capabilities to provide value to manufacturing companies.”
The industrial recycling facility, located at 6281 N. Gateway Drive in Marion, has quick access to I-380 and I-80. This east-central Iowa location makes the plant an easy pick for manufacturers in Des Moines, Iowa City, the Quad Cities, and out to Rockford, IL and Rochester, MN.
Quincy Recycle and its subsidiary Quincy Farm Products are uniquely positioned to provide food waste outlets for Iowa’s many food processing and manufacturing plants.
Another subsidiary, On-Site Information Destruction, already services the Cedar Rapids area from its locations in Waterloo and Des Moines, Iowa. OSID provides AAA NAID certified paper, hard drive, and product destruction services.
