Dave and Jill Campbell started Island Recycling over four decades ago to provide much-needed recycling services to the Island County community. Dave was born on Whidbey Island and saw an ad in the paper from the county for proposals to start a recycling center in Freeland at the old county landfill.
“Island Recycling gave Jill and me a chance to do something positive for the environment and be able to work on the Island and provide for our family. I am excited to see DTG Recycle continue the program that she and I spent our lives building and for the new services and capabilities they will bring to our community that they currently offer elsewhere in the state.”
This announcement marks DTG Recycle’s fourth acquisition in the last two months as they expand their geographic footprint and service offerings. “We continue to be excited that so many business owners entrust DTG Recycle to continue and build upon the great traditions they have built,” says Tom Vaughn.
