Philadelphia's Only comprehensive waste recycling & Recovery facility

Richard S. Burns is the Delaware Valley's only complete recycling and waste recovery facility. Our origins date to the 1960s and, since the mid 1980's we've been serving the Greater Philadelphia region's recycling needs. We are pioneers in the field of waste recycling and recovery and were advocates of a "greener" economy long before the term was in use.

Our experience, size and reasonable pricing provide immediate benefits to our customers. We offer:

  • A hauling service with a fleet of vehicles ready to remove waste from your site quickly. Our response time is almost always "same day" and, often, we can get to your site within one or two hours of your call. If you prefer to use your own hauling service, our recycling facility is still ready to receive, recover or recycle your materials and waste from the hauler of your choosing.
  • A dumpster service, offering you the ability to rent the container or dumpster in a size and configuration appropriate to your needs.
  • A fully-permitted facility which can receive and recycle any type of non-hazardous waste.
  • A clean and efficient 10 acre facility in Philadelphia, capable of handling 1500 tons/day.
  • Two LEED certified project managers on staff, allowing you to fulfill LEED requirements for materials recovery.
