For the past two years, A&A Midwest Recycling has been contracted by the Sands Expo Center to help recycle items, primarily metal, from the AAPEX Show. It took the company over eight hours to complete the project.
"The Sands has a problem every year because AAPEX is the one convention where people leave behind heavy stuff that their custodial department is not equipped to pickup, such as 500 pound axles and heavy items like that," explained Scott Stolberg, president and CEO, A&A Midwest Recycling. "The Sands is a LEED certified building and recycling is very important to them. As a result of our work the Sands gets recycling credits and we can assure AAPEX exhibitors that the samples they leave behind are not going anywhere except to be recycled."
In addition, the Sands Expo Center receives revenue from A&A Midwest Recycling for the recycled items to help offset some of their cleanup costs.
Since it began purchasing scrap metal in 2004, A&A Midwest Recycling has grown to be one of Las Vegas’ leading full-service scrap recyclers. The company purchases and processes many forms of scrap metal (ferrous and nonferrous) including aluminum, brass, cast iron, copper, and stainless steel. A&A Midwest Recycling buys scrap from contractors, demolition companies, government and municipal entities, and utilities. With qualified orders, A&A Midwest Recycling will pick up these materials at a business location, pay the owner for them and haul them away.
