Can it be recycled?

"Can It Be Recycled?" Program

Can It Be Recycled? is a FREE program designed to help industry economically and environmentally dispose of UNIQUE or DIFFICULT solid wastes.

Industrial manufacturers across New England generate large volumes of solid waste. Once the “easy” recyclables like corrugated and paper are removed from the waste stream, generators are often left with huge volumes of unique, “difficult”, wastes resulting in substantial disposal costs.

Conigliaro Industries’ Can It Be Recycled? program will help you recycle these unique wastes. Our staff of engineers specializes in formulating ways to recycle all types of unique rigid and flexible plastics, foams, laminated papers, metal, glass, rubber, and textiles.

To take advantage of our Can It Be Recycled? Program, simply print and fill out a Material Evaluation Form and submit it along with a 5 pound or 5 gallon sample to our Materials Laboratory.

Our Materials Laboratory will then analyze your sample and determine if it can be theoretically and economically recycled, rather than landfilled or incinerated.

Should we determine that your unique material can indeed be recycled, Conigliaro Industries then prepares a written quotation which outlines the costs to recycle and documents the potential savings versus landfilling or incineration.

We then design and develop a turn-key system for the collection, storage, processing and shipment of your unique waste.

Lastly, Conigliaro Industries will work with you to train employees, install the necessary containers and equipment, and begin a workable recycling program which will save money, meet environmental goals, and comply with existing and proposed recycling legislation.

What Our Customers Are Saying

  • The 1990 Coastsweep Kickoff was a great success thanks to your support! Although the day got off to a rainy start, it certainly didn't dampen the spirits of the enthusiastic volunteers that came out to keep our Massachusetts beaches clean.

    Conigliaro Industries contribution of adding a recycling component to the cleanup effort was invaluable. We appreciate your generosity and the cooperation displayed by your fine staff. Your concern and commitment to our environment and the community is a great example to other business leaders.

  • "Through Conigliaro's cost effective and reliable service, we've been able to provide carpet reclamation services to more and more Bentley Prince Street customers in the New England area. Helping our customers divert their existing carpet from the landfill after installing new Bentley Prince Street carpet and carpet tile has been made easier and cheaper in the New England area through Conigliaro's container rentals, drop trailers, live load pickups, and carpet reclamation services. Thanks Conigliaro for helping Bentley Prince Street and our customers keep carpet out of the landfill!"

  • Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veterans Hospital
    Bedford, Massachusetts
    Healthcare facilities generate the most unique and challenging waste streams possible. Atthe Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veterans Hospital, not only is our hospital waste stream diversified and unusual, our potential recyclables are as well. Our facility generates and recycles paper, cardboard, wood, glass, metal, plastics, rubber, textiles, construction and demolition debris, batteries, fluorescent lamps, and more. If it can be recycled, we are recycling it.

    In June 1996, I approached Greg Conigliaro of Conigliaro Industries about developing a total recycling program. I knew nothing about recycling. Greg has a vast store of knowledge and an enthusiastic interest in sharing that knowledge. Step-by-step, Greg helped us put together a total recycling program.

    Since our partnership, Conigliaro Industries and our dedicated hospital "Green Team" have developed one of the most successful hospital recycle programs in the country. Our recycle program won the MassRecycle Institutional Recycling Award. We were presented at The National Recycling Coalition two years in a row. We received two Certificates of Achievement from the Federal Environmental Executive and we have been nominated for the White House Closing the Circle 2000 Award. In fiscal year 1999, we recycled 950,564 pounds of materials, an incredible 46% of out total waste stream!

    I cannot say enough about the leadership and professionalism of Greg Conigliaro and Conigliaro Industries.

  • "Conigliaro has been a huge asset to the Town of Franklin spanning many departments in the DPW from recycling concrete buildings to expanding our Recycling Center offerings. We have added key products for recycling such as Styrofoam, mattresses, box springs and carpeting. Turn around is fast and service excellent."

  • Please allow me to take this opportunity to thank you for the very informative tour of your facilities. The courtesies extended to our group from MARSHALLS were deeply appreciated. I also found your explanation of each of the many tasks that you perform to be extremely interesting. Couple this with the sheer magnitude of your entire operation, it is clear why your company is a leader in its field.

  • I wanted to take the time to thank Conigliaro Industries for helping us to recycle at the high school. Specifically, your company's efforts in helping us dispose consciously of over 1,000 old math text books is much appreciated.

    Even more exciting is given the success of the recycling efforts of the Math Department, Framingham High School has decided to recycle even more textbooks on a school-wide basis.

    Thanks again for your efforts. Keep up the great work in trying to conserve the limited resources that the world has to offer.
