Our Story

Kalix opened the Recycling Center in 1994 in order to provide employment opportunities for people with disabilities. During its time, the Kalix recycling center employed people to unload customer cars, sort recyclable commodities, empty confidential document bins at customer sites, shred confidential documents, disassemble computers into components, sort books, sell & ship books, and tear pages out of books for recycling as paper.
