We will be putting a great “wrap” on our new baby and looking for some sponsorship for it as well. If you are interested in this, please give me a call or email me.

Happy Belated Mothers Day to all the Mom’s.
Business has been continuing to grow this year. Shredding, assembly and plastic wrap recycling have been very busy.
We recently started a project that we are super excited about. We have named it “The Foam Project”. We named it this because it is foam. This is a project that is projected to last for a few years. The best part is that everyone we employ has been able to work on this project. In fact, last Monday the crew was challenged to complete 11,000 units. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they completed 13,500 and blew my goal away.
We also had a pretty good week with the rest of our production. We completed a total of 57,000 units.
Shredding continues to boom. We completed 16,000 lbs. of paper and 3,000 lbs. of cardboard.
We also collected 2,800 lbs. of boat wrap.
All of these positive numbers mean that Firelands Local is hiring. We are looking for 1 full time employee. If you want to join our team please fill out an application here: https://firelandslocal.com/
Well April is finally here. The spring weather is upon us. Well at least if you can look past the tiny blizzards and cold blowing wind it is.
3/25 was our annual shred drop off day. We collected 16,825 lbs. from 23 customers. That was a 30% increase in weigh from last year. I would like to thank all the folks that took part in our event. Together we helped save 143 trees from being harvested.
We followed that up with another busy week. We started service for 2 new customers and completed 3 purges totaling just over 12,000 lbs.
Production was very busy as well completing 31,000 units.
We shredded 24,000 lbs. of paper last week and collected 8,000 lbs. of cardboard for recycling.
We continue to grow and are looking someone who like to be part of our growth. We have an opening for a full time person that will be helping in all areas that we operate. If you are interested, please apply at firelandslocal.com.
I hope everyone had a great Christmas.
Firelands is closed this week to give all of our employees the opportunity to spend some quality time with there families and get some much deserved time off.
I would like to take the opportunity to thank all of our business partners and customers who have worked with us this past year. It has been a crazy year. We look forward to being able to continue to work with you in the coming years.
Description of the picture. I get asked all the time “What does it look like when your cardboard baler throws up?” OK, no one has actually asked me that. I am including a picture of what it looks like.
I hope everyone enjoys the New Year celebrations in a safe manner. See you all next year.
