Continuing an aggressive schedule of expansion throughout the Northeast, Upstate Shredding-Ben Weitsman has acquired the assets of Hornell Waste Material Co. of Hornell, New York.
Weitsman facilities are located throughout New York and Pennsylvania. New York locations can be visited in Owego, Syracuse, Binghamton, Liberty, Jamestown, Albany, Rochester, Ithaca and Allegany. Pennsylvania yards are located in Scranton and New Castle.
Hornell Waste Materials (now known as Ben Weitsman of Hornell) was founded in 1908 and is the oldest recycling business in the Hornell area.
The company is located in a region underserved by recycling infrastructure, with other facilities located twenty and thirty miles away; having a state-of-the-art facility in Hornell will meet this need as well as stimulate the economy in the local area.
When adding new scrap yards to the Upstate Shredding-Ben Weitsman feeder yard network, several millions of dollars are spent bringing new yards up to modern operating standards. Typical improvements include new scrap recycling equipment, renovation of existing facilities, erection of new buildings, paved yards, new fencing and landscaping to provide a clean operating environment and aesthetically appealing facility.
