Recycling is the process of converting waste materials into new materials and objects. It is an alternative to "conventional" waste disposal that can save material and help lower greenhouse gas emissions. Recycling can prevent the waste of potentially useful materials and reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials, thereby reducing: energy usage, air pollution (from incineration), and water pollution (from landfilling).
We are committed to our community and the environment.
Recycling is a key component of modern waste reduction and is the third component of the "Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle" waste hierarchy. Thus, recycling aims at environmental sustainability by substituting raw material input into and redirecting waste output out of the economic system.
This is Nevada’s Future.
The majority of all materials that are received at Andrade's Cleaning Company In Las Vegas, can be re-used or recycled. By maintaining an average of a 70% recycle rate, ANDRADE'S recycling team not only prevents waste from going to the growing landfills, but it also creates new markets for all of the recycled materials. It is this practice that keeps Southern Nevada clean & green, and our recycling and construction materials & economy going.
List of materials that Andrade's recycle
We Recycle Metal
Metal is separated from the waste stream and segregated into ferrous and non-ferrous metals. These metals are then taken to buy back centers for further processing.
We Recycle Wood
Wood is taken to our grinding facility where the end product is sold for playground mix, landscaping, and even press board that is sold in your local Home Depot.
We Recycle Plastic
Plastic is baled into 1,200 lb bales. These bales of plastic are then exported to other facilities for further processing which is used to inject into plastic molds.
We Recycle Cardboard
Carboard is also baled, and it is shipped to other processing centers across the USA.
We Recycle Drywall
Drywall is screened (filtered) and sold to farmers who use it to balance the Ph in their soil. It is also capable of holding moisture well, so crops need less watering but utilize more water.
We Recycle Concrete
Concrete is cleaned and taken to crush plants where it is turned into what is called ‘type 2’. It can then be used for base in new construction projects.
We Recycle Asphalt
Asphalt is cleaned and taken to plants where it will also be crushed and reused in new pavement.
