About Go Green Recycling

Go Green Recycling story



Most of what we throw away today is made from materials that the Earth is slowly running out of or which cannot be replaced quickly enough because of the amount we consume.
  Many of the products thrown into landfills have a value and can be recycled.  Recycling involves taking materials that would normally be discarded as waste, processing them, and giving them a new life.Unfortunately, people have often been reluctant to take their recyclables to a center because the centers been located in out-of-the-way, unsafe locations. The parking lots have been cluttered, the buildings and workers unsavory. Then the money paid to them has been less than they expected.

All that has changed for many cities in Stanislaus and San Joaquin counties.
Starting from a single location in 2007, Go Green Recycling has grown to six busy locations today.
The first center, located in a former service station in Stockton, was very quickly a successful operation ,”a overnight success,”
Providing a safe, clean location with good customer service, and paying top dollar to our customers soon established Go Green Recycling as the top choice for people looking for a recycling center.

We are committed to providing top notch customer services to our clients. 
We are creating jobs and revenue for cities.  One of the most satisfying contributions and aspects of Go Green Recycling is protecting the environment of the planet Earth by recycling the things that create jobs and revenue for the citizens of this nation.”


This business philosophy has allowed us to expand to a second location in Stockton, and to Tracy, Manteca, Lodi,  and Turlock in four years. There are active plans for further expansion.
