GENESIS DEVELOPMENT has been involved in recycling since the mid 1970’s when we operated a newspaper-recycling program. In the 1980’s we expanded our recycling program into the areas of business cardboard, office ledger and wooden pallets, and became involved in the pilot project for plastic recyclables sponsored by Fareway Stores.

In 1993 GENESIS partnered with Greene County to initiate and provide a countywide recycling program and was awarded a DNR grant to establish the Genesis Recycling Center. The Center is owned and operated by GENESIS while Greene County provides collection and transportation of recyclable materials to the facility.
