of the Pacific Northwest acquires Glacier Recycle
Waste Management of the Pacific Northwest
(WM) has entered into an agreement to acquire Glacier Recycle,
which provides comprehensive recycling services for the construction
industry. WM officials said the acquisition will expand the company’s
green services related to waste reduction, waste recovery and
the processing of waste into new materials.
Glacier recycles construction materials and
processes recovered wood for the manufacturing of recycled wood
products and for use as biomass fuel. Through its wood processing
facility in Auburn and its rental containers for construction
sites, Glacier serves the entire Puget Sound area.
Dean Kattler, WM’s vice president-Pacific
Northwest, said the integration of Glacier’s processing facilities
will allow WM to significantly increase its construction recycling
in the Puget Sound region. He said it will also position WM to
provide services to support the continued growth of green building
and LEED certification across the region.
