Midwest Fiber Recycling is excited to announce the acquisition of Community Resource Inc. (CRI) in Urbana, IL; a sales agreement combining two companies' capabilities, knowledgeable teams, and customized recycling services.


Midwest Fiber was excited to purchase the operation from Matt Snyder, who began CRI with its recycling services to commercial and industrial customers in 1996. Known for its flexible services and knowledgeable staff, CRI uses a combination of company-owned hauling equipment and contracted carriers across the United States to ship approximately 1,500 truckloads of recyclables each year!


“After working with Matt Snyder for a number of years, the opportunity to purchase CRI was one that we couldn’t pass up. CRI has a great reputation of finding markets for hard-to-recycle materials and doing it cost- effectively. Over the years, CRI developed a great staff, and we are proud that they have all accepted positions with Midwest Fiber.” ~Todd Shumaker, Vice President of Sales and Marketing (Midwest Fiber Recycling)


Providing the same kind of flexible and creative services, Midwest Fiber is a family-owned business that began operations in 1990. Since then, we've grown into 375,000 square feet of warehousing and sorting facilities with a service area that extends throughout the Midwest. Operating facilities in Normal IL, Decatur IL, Springfield IL, Peoria IL, and Terre Haute IN, Midwest Fiber keeps more than 300 MILLION pounds of material out of the landfill each year!


This acquisition will offer the Champaign-Urbana area additional recycling services, and give businesses the opportunity to reduce the amount of materials being sent to the landfill. Our companies’ combined capabilities 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.

Recycled paper supplies more than 37% of the raw materials used to make new paper products in the U.S. Without recycling, this material would come from trees. Every ton of newsprint or mixed paper recycled is the equivalent of 12 trees. Every ton of office paper recycled is the equivalent of 24 trees.
