LARC is pleased to announce the successful launch of its new Recycling Center! LARC purchased the new facility located at 901 West Hill Avenue in the summer of 2015. LARC’s Board of Directors, consumers, and staff worked tirelessly to make sure the Recycling Center would be a huge success after opening in October of 2016. LARC’s Recycling Center has seen a tremendous amount of growth over the last year, and has become the largest cardboard recycling facility in the region. To make all this possible, LARC purchased a reconditioned horizontal cardboard baler that is capable of processing and baling over 10 tons of cardboard per hour. This new equipment enabled LARC to double production since we moved to the new facility! LARC’s cardboard pickup routes in our community have also increased by 25% this year! These routes provide local businesses a service that reduces costs while providing employment for LARC’s consumers. WIN-WIN! The Recycling Center looks forward to further expansion by acquiring more businesses that need our pickup service. We plan on executing a large marketing campaign in the coming months to ensure that every citizen knows about LARC’s Recycling Center. Private citizens have also begun saving their cardboard and dropping it off at the center. LARC would like to thank the numerous businesses, organizations, individuals, and the City of Valdosta for all the assistance provided in this expansion. LARC is proud to be “GREEN” by keeping 120 tons of cardboard out of our local landfills every month. LARC certainly encourages any business or individual that has waste cardboard to call us @ 229-469-8073 or drop by and see what all the excitement is about!

LARC recently celebrated Valentine's Day and it was a blast! It was a fun time of dancing, laughing and full of smiles. Consumers brought candies to share with their peers and had special cupcakes and drink provided by LARC. They also had a special DJ come out and play music while they danced! Each and every one them left with a special goodie bag given by LARC.
It because of people like you that give generously to LARC for us to be able to do this for our consumers. Take a few minutes to check out some pictures from our party and be sure to also donate today.
