Its a busy fall season as many of our customers push to make their final fall clean up a reality before winter comes to the Treasure Valley.

TVM facilties in Nampa and Payette are both open Saturday 8 AM to NOON to help you find the extra hours to recycle and complete your clean ups.  Recycle with us Monday through Friday at all 3 locations, and if you need to make Saturday a get er done day, we got you covered.

That way you can still wet a line, spend some time in the field, or be with the family.   TVM helps Idaho recycle!


Summer Clean Up Time, Get it Done

Deal with ThisYes,  you know you have cleaning to do around your ranch, home, or place of work.  Cars that won’t ever run again, pumps and pieces that have been parted out, and just that general ‘stuff’ you mean to get rid of.

Turn you scrap to cash and get the job done.  Visit one of our convenient locations.  If you have truckloads of scrap metal, roll off service or larger trailers might make economic sense.

Whatever you have, don’t put it off.  Recycle for Idaho today.


Economic Impact of the Recycling Industry

When you recycle with TVM Recycling, you are part of our nation’s first green industry.  Our industries, friends and neighbors help keep Idaho & Oregon clean by  transforming end-of-life products and
industrial scrap into new commodity grade materials and driving economies by making the old, new again.

The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries has published it’s 2015 Economic Impact Study on the reach and breath of metal recycling.   They point out that scrap recycling creates and supports jobs and has a positive impact on the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, saving energy and protecting our natural resources.  The industry generates nearly $106 billion in economic activity annually.

ISRI has summarized it’s 2015 report in this interesting video.

The Impact of Recycling

Why recycle?  icecream

Ever wonder about the benefits of this activity we’re all engaged in on a regular basis?  By nature, we recycling types like to be sure we get the value out of things.  We like to be sure old gets reused, resources are conserved, we’re a bit more energy efficient and wiser with our environment.

That’s not the whole story.  The recycling industry is a key contributor to our national economy and vital to Idaho and Oregon.  Recycling metals, paper, plasitc, and glass generate $87 billion in economic activity and provide 140,000 jobs nationwide.

Our good customers are part of this story.  It starts with your action, your patronage to TVM Recycling, and the support of our  community.  We thank your for your business.  Most importantly, we thank you for being part of the recycling success story.
