Recys Systems History
Our Agricultural Roots

Recyc Systems, Inc. is a local, Virginia owned and operated company with deep roots in agriculture and environmental preservation. Riding the wave of environmental consciousness that sprang up during the 1970s, the company was founded in 1983 by a group of Virginia agri-businessmen that caught a vision for the application of municipal biosolids to farmlands.

The company quickly distinguished itself as an innovator in this new technology, and developed a reputation for partnering with municipalities and farmers for the benefit of both. Unlike some of its larger competitors, Recyc Systems does not view itself as a waste management company. It continues to be a regional, family-owned business that makes the benefits of biosolids reuse available to farms in its own region.

“We live in the area which we serve,” says company Vice President Susan Trumbo, “so we go beyond every regulation to assure that our services truly benefit everyone in the community. We’re not an out-of-state operator who isn’t concerned about what’s happening in the local community. That’s what makes us different.”

Today Recyc System serves large and small municipalities throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. Through its tireless effort to connect wastewater treatment plants with farmers that can benefit from biosolids, the company keeps an average of 300,000 tons of biosolids out of the landfills.

The agricultural application of biosolids is a carefully regulated industry. Recyc Systems has been a part of it since its earliest years, and is respected and trusted by community leaders, state and federal regulators, and farmers.
