Here at American we like to share with you what we've been up to whenever we can-not just in the news or at your curb-but also behind the scenes, at our offices and out in the world!
This idea has led to our series of blogs entitled:
American....Behind the (Green) Scenes. In these posts, we include a link to our
internal monthly newsletter, The Daily Dumpster.
It's our way of sharing OUR family with yours. With so many exciting events and announcements covered in The Daily Dumpster (both professional and personal) we want to keep sharing it with you!

We hope you enjoy!

Last November we posted a blog entitled: American....Behind
the (Green) Scenes. In the post, we included a link to the PDF of our internal
monthly newsletter, The Daily Dumpster.
It was our way of sharing OUR family with yours…..giving you a backstage pass; an insider’s view; a true window into the work we ALL do here, every day, at American Disposal and Recycling. Well, we have decided to do it again!
American is a family and with so many exciting events and announcements covered in this issue (both professional and personal) we thought it was time to bring the family together once again, the WHOLE family-that means you guys too!
At American, all our customers ARE family. But even if you are simply a fan of this blog, a passionate environmentalist, or just happen to run across this post; we welcome YOU to read this exciting issue as well!

'Curb to Commodity' ...That's what we call it here at American: The journey your recyclables take from the moment they leave your curb until they are sorted, baled and then shipped all over the world to make new, recycled goods.....
Well, now American is now playing an even bigger part in that journey as we welcome our state of the art recycling processing facility The American Recycling Center, as well as the attached Interactive Learning Center.
The American Recycling Center is American's new Single Stream Recycling Processing Facility, located here in Prince William County.
This Recycling Center saves over 1 million kilowatts of energy …per DAY.
That’s enough energy to drive a car almost 400,000 MILES and enough energy to power a house for over 100 YEARS….
And yes, I did say-per DAY.
