Waste to Energy

The process of recovering energy from waste is a way for us to meet our customers’ unique non-hazardous waste disposal needs with sustainable and secure solutions. We are able to work with organizations that require secure destruction, liquids destruction, and we provide an outlet for non-hazardous industrial and manufacturing waste recovery. The process uses heat generated from the waste combustion of MSW refuse to heat boilers, producing steam to power turbine generators. The steam and electricity generated is provided as power to local utilities.

Items Include:

Manufacturing Waste

Processing Sludge

Commodity Waste

Consumer Products
Food Products
Recalled Products
Liquids and Water

Industrial Waste

Tires and Rubber
Carpet and Tile

Forklift handling rolls

Roll Stock

Mid America has decades of experience managing and handling prime rolls, job lot, and excess or damaged inventories. Utilizing both domestic and international markets we both process and market many grades of rolls with many different specs. We have formal partnerships with converters and consumers that guarantee continuous movement at high market values, regardless of the grade or spec. Our marketing and processing teams buy partial loads, combo loads, and full loads.

Book Recycling

Primarily working with recyclers, not for profits, libraries, distributors, and publishers, Mid America buys books that are old, damaged, overran, and obsolete and market them into specialized markets for resale and recycling.
