Sustainable Recycling Done Right


Largest Recycling Company in Bellingham, Washington and Mount Vernon 

In 1991, brothers Troy and Torrey Lautenbach started a small company in Bellingham, Washington, and Mount Vernon to recycle construction waste. 30 years later, Lautenbach Recycling is one of the region’s premier employers and the largest family-owned recycling company in Washington State.

Supporting Northwest Washington Communities Through Sustainable Services

Our residential and industrial services include sustainable demolition, transportation services, recycling
audits, self-haul recycling, and organic waste solutions. We protect our Northwest Washington
communities with innovative partnerships and evolving technologies.

As a society, we’ve all become more and more accustomed to convenience; we’ve also become complacent to the waste that we create. We continue to see plastic drink bottles, canned foods, product packaging, glass bottles and jars being discarded. Our landfill space is limited, and in some cases shrinking rapidly. At Lautenbach Recycling, it is critical to our mission of environmental stewardship to develop sustainable methods and technologies to handle our region’s ever-increasing waste.

When you partner with Lautenbach, you can count on our 30+ years of experience and passionate commitment to service and sustainability. Our leadership and customer service teams bring a wealth of experience, knowledge, and skills to every segment of our company, and to every interaction with our clients and customers. Our upcycling technologies contribute to a sustainability circle that benefits our community and the environment. Our focus on family and community ensures that we think multi-generationally when strategizing our materials management and recycling solutions.

Whether your job is large or small, we provide economical transportation services including roll-off trucks, drop box rentals, tipper trailers, and live floor trailers.  Our recycling customers run the gamut from refineries to construction companies, from dairy farms to food manufacturing plants. Regardless of the size or complexity of your hauling needs, our experienced drivers will handle the job effectively and efficiently.
