After more than a century in the clean-up business, Filco Carting Corp, established in 1910 remains on the cutting edge of sustainability initiatives.
Filco is an innovator in helping companies find ways to become more environmentally responsible. We offer numerous innovative programs that help businesses, institutions and agencies save money, generate new revenue with their recyclables, and operate as a model green business.
Members Making a Difference
Filco Carting Corp. is a member of The National Waste & Recycling Association, the leading organization providing leadership, advocacy, research, education, and safety expertise to promote the North American waste and recycling industries. The organization serves as a voice and creates a climate where members prosper and provide safe, economically sustainable, and environmentally sound services.
Filco provides e-scrap and universal waste handling and recycling programs for computers and other electronic office equipment, bulbs, batteries, thermostats, and lamps containing mercury and other regulated materials. As a member of the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID), Filco offers secure, certified confidential document destruction services at the lowest prices in the New York market.
Recycling is known to be costly, but Filco has automated much of the process in such a way that returns significant savings to the consumer. We have reduced disposal costs from the sale and landfill diversion of recovered material. By avoiding high disposal costs we are able to pass the savings on to our customers.
Filco’s commitment to cleaning up the planet began in 1910, with a horse and wagon, picking up trash in Manhattan’s garment district. Today, we are a fourth-generation family-owned business and a leader in the evolution of the waste removal and recycling industry. Our goal is the same now as it was a century ago—to clean up the environment.
Sustainability Through Single Stream Recycling
What is Single Stream Recycling?
It’s a system in which all recyclables, including newspaper, cardboard, plastic, aluminum, junk mail, etc., are placed in a single container for recycling.
