HISTORY TIMELINE

2004
Cardinal Recycling Company started in 2004 servicing small accounts with a 26’ straight truck. We recognized companies that were not generating large volume of industrial recycling that  still needed to be serviced.

2006
CRC moved to Morris Illinois where we started processing cardboard for the waste haulers, as well as our industrial accounts. We retain many of our original customers from that time period.  Volume has continued to increase by expanding our geographical foot print.

2015
Installed our first grinder learned the basics of grinding plastics.

2016
Added two more grinding lines and was the beginning of being part of a supply chain for the plastics world.

2017
Installed shredding capability as well as a plastics analytical lab.

2018
Added two more large grinding lines capable of large volumes per hour capabilities.

2020
Built a 12,000 sq. ft., 3-dock addition to house a new processing line to handle our increasing dunnage business.

** PLEASE NOTE:  We no longer handle cardboard, PET or PVC.**

2021
Installed new shredder to keep up with continual increasing volume.

Continuing to see what is next to help service our customers!

HEAR WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

I have had the pleasure of working with the Cardinal Recycling team on many projects. No unfilled promises or half-truths. If they say they will do something, it will be done, and it will be done the right way.
