About Cedar Avenue Recycling & Transfer Station
The CARTS facility, started by the Caglia Family in 2004, represents the latest generation of materials recovery facilities. Unlike a traditional garbage dump, such as the closed Orange Avenue Landfill, the CARTS facility is a fully integrated materials recovery facility, processing trash, construction/demolition debris, green waste/organics recyclables and traditional recycling from commercial, government, industrial, and residential customers for diversion from landfills. CARTS recycles over 70% of trash, green/organics and recyclables collected, repurposing it into raw materials for transformation into new products for consumers.
