Rehrig Pacific Company, a supplier of roll-out carts, recycle bins and commercial containers to the waste and recycling collection industry, plans to add roll-out cart production at its Orlando, Florida
, manufacturing plant. The firm plans to have roll-out cart production capacity in the facility during the first half of 2014.
The company has been actively serving the Florida market over the past eight years by producing both 14- and 18-gallon recycling bins in Orlando. The company said in 2010, the Florida Legislature passed a bill requiring the State of Florida to achieve a recycling rate of 75 percent by 2020. At that time, it became apparent that single stream recycling would be one component in that effort.
"By adding cart capacity to our existing Florida operation, we will be able to serve the growing needs of the State of Florida and the region at large," said Mike Schwalbach, Vice President of Rehrig Pacific's Environmental Group. "Having cart production in central Florida will not only reduce our lead times, but it will also provide our customers with a reduced carbon footprint as well as freight savings."
Rehrig Pacific said its roll-out carts are designed to withstand the rigors of both fully and semi-automated waste collection systems.
