Conigliaro Engineering began in 1990 as a recycling services firm, dedicated to the removal of office paper waste. This led to entry into the brand new field of “Total Recycling”. After incorporating under the new name Conigliaro Industries, Inc. on January 1, 1991, the firm’s focus changed towards providing plastic, metal, glass, and paper recycling in an effort to offer clients “one-stop-shopping”. Since that time, the list of acceptable recyclables has expanded to 150 different plastic, metal, glass, rubber, wood, corrugated, paper, and textile materials.

A family-run business, Conigliaro Industries has grown from one to 35 employees and now operates a fleet of 9 trucks, 50 tractor trailers and 150 rolloff containers. The firm owns and operates a fully permitted 88,000 square foot Material Recovery Facility in Framingham, Massachusetts.
Recent equipment and facility additions include two outdoor tipping pads, 9 loading docks, a ShredPax AZ-80 shredder, a Marathon Two Ram TR-10 Baler with conveyor pit and sorting station, a Komatsu Excavator with Grapple Assembly, as well as a Clean Wood, Newspaper, and Commingled Container Sorting and Bulk Handling Area.
Now in its 18th year of operation, Conigliaro Industries currently serves 550 industrial, institutional, and municipal customers including 42 school systems, 22 colleges and universities, 40 hospitals, 20 cities and towns, and 150 industrial plants.
Products from Recycled Materials
Early in 1992, in an effort to diversify and vertically integrate, Conigliaro Industries began manufacturing products made from many of the materials collected from customer locations. The first product, "PolyCorn", is a packing "peanut" manufactured from 100% recycled, 92% post–consumer Polystyrene Foam, a #6 plastic. Since its debut, Conigliaro Industries has developed and now markets "Pink PolyCorn", a packing peanut manufactured from 100% recycled Polyethylene Foam, a #4 plastic or Polypropylene Foam, and a #5 plastic.
Conigliaro Industries also repackages and resells once used packaging supplies, including bubble wrap and shipping cartons. In addition, Conigliaro Industries has developed a strategic partnership with a wood recycler. This relationship allows Conigliaro Industries to offer our customers a close-the-loop clean wood recycling and 100% recycled landscape mulch purchase program.
Regardless of the material and the current state of recyclable commodity markets, Conigliaro Industries continues to expand and create recycling solutions. With many of our customers achieving 90% recycling rates, we continue to seek our eventual corporate goal of Zero-Client-Waste.
