Your Partner in Responsible Appliance Recycling
JACO Environmental is dedicated to protecting
the environment and preserving the earth's
valuable resources through the art of
responsible appliance recycling.
Started over twenty years ago in Snohomish County, north of Seattle, Washington,
JACO Environmental has grown to become one of the largest recyclers of house-
hold appliances in the United States. We
have partnered with local and regional
utilities in 28 states across the country
to provide effective, turn-key appliance
recycling programs that save utilities
energy and money, while creating green
jobs in their communities.
Through a proven combination of proprietary and non-proprietary equipment and
processes, JACO ensures that over 95% of the components and materials of the
discarded appliance are either recycled for beneficial uses or eliminated in an
environmentally responsible way. The remaining 5% can then be productively used
as “fluff” to facilitate the decomposition of biodegradable landfill material. Our
process is so thorough and safe that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
honored JACO with an International Stratospheric Ozone Protection Award in 2004
and a Best of the Best award in 2007 on the 20th anniversary of the Montreal Protocol.
