Britton Industries' has opened a new location in Philadelphia, expanding its position as a leading producer and supplier of organic mulch, topsoil, leaf compost and crushed concrete products in Central New Jersey and Southeast Pennsylvania. Britton stated it is proud of its 100-percent recovery rate of the recyclable material brought into each of its facilities as there is no leftover material sent to landfills.
“This purchase is an integral part of Britton's commitment to our region and our customers. A commitment to continue to provide sustainable solutions to the challenges of managing organic waste and a commitment to our customers ¬– to listen to their needs and expand into locations beneficial to them and their businesses,” said Jim Britton, owner and CEO. “Adding Philadelphia enables us to address those needs by providing another convenient location to drop off a load of concrete, source a dumpster for their jobsite or stop by to pick up a load of mulch or screened topsoil.”
The new Philadelphia location is in the Northeast at 8901 Torresdale Avenue. It is open and fully operational, accepting soil, concrete, trees, brush, leaves, clean lumber and pallets for recycling. There is a small supply store on site along with sales of Britton Recycled products including screened topsoil, crushed concrete, crushed stone, mason sand and mulch.
“Britton Industries has the experience, leadership, relationships and customer service skills to deliver on our commitment to the region. By converting waste materials to mulch, compost and soil products we are creating safe, affordable and beneficial organic materials that provide a green solution to the communities and customers we service,” said Jim Mangarella, general manager.
Founded in 1989, Britton Industries facilities use “best-in-class processes to transform vegetative and concrete waste into environmentally sustainable resources that benefit our communities and our planet,” according to the company.
