Since 1990, Midwest Fiber Recycling has been Central Illinois’ leader in full-service recycling options. Originally known as Weyerhaeuser Recycling in Normal and Decatur Paper Recycle Co. in Decatur, Midwest Fiber Recycling focuses on providing creative and effective solutions for its clients’ recycling needs.
Today, Midwest Fiber Recycling operates facilities in Bloomington-Normal, Decatur IL, Springfield IL, Peoria IL, and Terre Haute, IN – and our service area extends throughout the Midwest. Combined, it owns more than 375,000 square feet of processing and warehousing facilities and processes over 300,000,000 pounds of recyclable materials each year!
In an effort to further support the needs of its clients, Midwest Fiber Recycling opened an additional division in 2003: Confidential On-Site Paper Shredding (C.O.P.S.). C.O.P.S. provides on-site, secure document shredding services for businesses throughout the area, including, purging and media/hard drive destruction services.
In 2011, the company grew exponentially with the construction of a new $8 million state-of-the-art single-stream Materials Recovery Facility at its Normal, Illinois location as well as the development of a community composting program. The single-stream expansion enabled the company to increase participation and make recycling easier for its Central Illinois residents. The community composting program, in cooperation with Illinois State University, offers schools, restaurants and local businesses that handle food the opportunity to compost food scraps verses throwing them in the trash.
Midwest Fiber recently acquired Data Management Services in Terre Haute, Indiana. The acquisition will combine Data Management Service's expertise with Midwest Fiber's recycling capabilities. The companies' combined proficiences will also lead to near and long-term growth opportunities, creating more "green jobs," and diversifying the types of commercial materials that can be recycled.
Recycling helps families save money, especially in communities with pay-as-you-throw programs.
