Generated Materials Recovery

Distribution Centers: Retail

Generated Materials Recovery has spent over 20 years providing creative solutions to manufacturing and industrial operations. We’ve worked with numerous clients in the manufacturing and industrial space who need dedicated retail distribution center recycling services during that time.

At GMR, we understand that waste and recycling is not the core of your business. Thus, we ensure that our services use as little of your operation’s resources as possible. If your company is looking for a way to outsource its retail distribution center recycling services, then you are our ideal client.

The GMR team uses in-depth industry knowledge and combined decades of practical experience to provide reliable and sustainable solutions. By partnering with GMR, our team will help you reduce your waste management costs and achieve your sustainability goals.

Here are a few grades and types of retail distribution center materials with which we can help you recycle:

Recycling Grades

  • Old Corrugated Cardboard or OCC
  • Cardboard boxes and cores
  • Old and new cardboard
  • Stretch film, commonly from grocery bags
  • Contaminated and uncontaminated plastic
  • Plastic with various levels of impurities

These are only a few of the grades GMR has helped recycle in the past. Regardless, we are not limited by these grades. If you have another grade of plastic you are interested in recycling and it’s not listed here, please contact us today.

At GMR, our team takes the necessary time to understand your business recycling goals. After those goals are understood, we provide you with a detailed proposal for equipment, transportation, and other commodities. GMR will deliver and install on-site equipment and set up a service schedule that best fits your business’s operation.

How are materials collected?

  • baled in a vertical downstroke baler
  • horizontal baler
  • loaded in compactors
  • cardboard loose in compactors
  • loose in open tops
  • partial truckload quantities
  • full truckload quantities


We offer maximum flexibility and efficiency when collecting your recyclable materials. Our team is respectful of our clients’ operations: your floorspace, dock space, equipment, and labor. Thus, our recycling programs reflect the unique needs of each client.

After GMR has collected your waste, there are several ways we then transport the materials to our recycling facility.

  • Staged road worthy storage trailers for collection
    • This trailer remains on-site at a client’s building. By using staged storage trailers, space can be freed up, and we can ensure there is no double handling of materials.
  • Roll off truck services for compactors and open tops

GMR owns and operates its recycling facilities throughout the United States. GMR ensures that all collected materials have the highest safety and environmental regulatory compliance standards issued by the EPA. At our recycling facilities, we sort, clean, and prepare materials for shipment to the supply chain’s next step. GMR also has a fleet of trucks and tractor-trailers and tailored logistics capabilities for your unique situation.

The GMR Difference

What sets us apart from the other recycling companies is our dedication to a client-centric model. GMR is proud to have a fully transparent pricing model. Because market prices for recyclables vary per month, GMR pays our clients’ true, current market price. Our prices will fluctuate with the market. We will never charge clients for materials with prices that deviate from the true market value.
