Taylor Garbage has made substantial investments in the recycling industry as we have evolved. Our single-stream recycling plant was recently built in Apalachin, New York. This facility is the first and only full-scale single-stream recycling plant in the area. This has allowed us to remove the burden of sorting from our customers and the employees at the curb.
