There can be a lot in a name – ours has been adopted from one of man’s best friends, and one of ours.  The Labrador retriever is loyal, reliable, strong, intelligent, friendly – and of course, retrieves like no other.  We admire, promote and share these same traits.  We apply them across all levels of our business every day with our customers, employees and trade partners.  And yes, we too retrieve extremely well – recyclables – with a happy, grateful attitude every day.  Just like our friend, the Labrador.

We have a history of providing exceptional service to industrial manufacturers since 1891 through our sister company, The Joseph Freedman Company.  It is with this knowledge and experience that we are able to screen, select and partner with the highest quality vendors to guarantee our customers’ complete satisfaction.

· Financial wherewithal and a history of ethical business
