The Empire Recycling Family of Companies

Founded in 1916 before the importance of recycling was recognized, Empire's creators, Robert, Morton and Louis Kowalsky, believed that simple items such as rags, paper and metals could be re-used. Today, recycling's impact on the environment is making a healthier, more industrious place for us to live, and Empire's services and commitment are a tremendous component in making that happen.


Continuing in the family tradition, Steven Kowalsky now serves as president of the growing company with his brother Ed serving as executive vice president.


Under the brothers' leadership, Empire has grown substantially and now includes multiple companies which form the Empire Recycling Family of Companies.
