Midland Davis Corporation -- November 17, 2010
Midland Davis Corporation can trace its roots back to 1892, when a 20-year-old immigrant named Louis Livingston began collecting pieces of discarded iron and steel to sell to local foundries and mills. During our tour of the Pekin business, we learned how the fifth-generation company has evolved into a full-service recycling provider that processes more than 168,000 pounds of cardboard, 42,000 pounds of newsprint, and 21,000 pounds each of paper and co-mingled plastics each week. We also had the opportunity to watch the entire scrap metal recycling process, from hopper sorting to semi-loading!
For more information about the services provided by Midland Davis, please visit the corporation's website.
