In the sunny state of Florida, Recycling Services of Florida, Inc. emerged as a beacon of eco-consciousness, serving as a testament to the power of family values and a relentless commitment to the environment. Our journey began in the vibrant 1970s when the visionary Frank Ward Sr., armed with nothing but two humble garbage trucks and a vision, took a leap of faith. He acquired D & D Disposal, not just as a business venture, but as a mission to discover value within discarded resources. Frank Sr. had a bold theory: to minimize waste's impact on our planet by reducing the items that found their way into landfills all while maximizing potential in waste materials.

As the 1990s dawned, our passion for change knew no bounds. We expanded our footprint beyond the Illinois horizon, spreading our wings to Florida, Indiana, and Tennessee. In the heart of Florida, our Recycling Services began to flourish and gain momentum. Contracts flowed in, and our family-run enterprise blossomed into a thriving force, employing over 1,000 dedicated individuals and operating a fleet of more than 700 trucks. We proudly serve our communities and are excited about the opportunity to work with you. Nowadays, we've seamlessly incorporated automated dispatch systems, embraced the power of social media, and embarked on countless educational initiatives, partnering with the communities of University of Tampa, as well as Pasco and Pinellas School districts. We've proudly served a diverse clientele, including thousands of customers, municipal and county governments, institutional, industrial, construction, and retail accounts. Our customer-centric approach has been the cornerstone of our success. Our unique niche in the recycling world, combined with our unwavering dedication as a private family-owned company, has proved to be a recipe for unparalleled success. Our story is one of growth, dedication, and an unwavering commitment to providing you with the best in recycling services. We invite you to experience the difference for yourself.
