Our Story

We at Richard S. Burns & Company are proud of our past, present and future. Founded as a small, one-man local cleanout operation in the 1960's, we have grown into an innovative waste recycling facility with a staff largely comprised of employees from the local community. Our 7 acre recovery compound capable of handling over 1500 tons a day of waste and materials. In our more than 40 years of experience, we have grown by adapting and innovating. Long before the world was talking about "green" technology, we pioneered the recovery and recycling of waste and materials. As our business and the needs of our customers grew, we invented products and techniques to meet those needs. As our country’s economy places increasing emphasis on sustainability and recycling, Burns is poised to offer innovative solutions and products. We are proud of our history and look forward to meeting our customers' challenges moving forward.
