Big or Small - We Recycle It All

North Georgia Textile Supply (NGTS) has been in business since 1970. Starting as a cardboard recycler for the carpet industry, the company has grown into full scale recycling operation capable of processing, waste management, and product destruction.
As a leader in recycling, we have made several innovations that allow us to process a large variety and volumes of different plastics. We turn raw plastic waste and heavily contaminated plastics into reusable plastic. We provide excellent service and offer the best in industry solutions to sustainability problems. We specialize in handling plastics that are hard to recycle, such as plastics with paper contamination, plastic with metal, and plastic with mix materials.

Benefits of Recycling

Recycling revenues can help defray recycling costs and avert the need for new disposal capacity. Every cubic yard of material recycled is one less cubic yard of landfill space required. These avoided costs are part of the “revenues” that recycling brings to a community. In 1996, 130 million cubic yards of material were diverted from landfills due to recycling and composting. If this amount of material had not been recycled, the U.S. would have needed 64 additional landfills, each with enough capacity to serve the combined city populations of Dallas and Detroit. By substituting recovered scrap materials for the use of trees, metal ores, minerals, oil, and other virgin materials, recycling reduces the pressure to expand forestry and mining production. Recycling one ton of paper saves the equivalent of 17 trees and 7,000 gallons of water. Fossil fuels and metals are nonrenewable resources. They cannot be replenished by nature within our lifetimes and are in limited supply. The more of these materials we extract, the less that remains for future generations.
  • Recycling protects and expands US manufacturing jobs and increases US competitiveness.
  • Recycling reduces landfill and incineration waste.
  • Recycling prevents pollution caused by the manufacturing of products from virgin materials.
  • Recycling decreases emissions of greenhouse gases that contribute to global climate change.
  • Recycling conserves natural resources such as timber, water, and minerals.
  • Recycling helps sustain the environment for future generations.
