Ed's Recycling is a family owned business located in Clovis, New Mexico. Ed's Recycling was founded with the purpose of providing a valuable service to the local community. Since the gates first opened in 1996, their goal has been to offer a honest price for scrap metal while also diverting recyclable material from the landfill. Over the years, Ed & Mike Lingnau have done just that, and in the process have found the opportunity to expand services beyond Clovis. Ed's Recycling kept 1500 tons of recyclables out of landfills in 1996. Through growth and vision, the company extended its reach and in 2008, Ed's was able to divert 25,000 tons (50 million pounds) of recyclable material out of landfills in New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma.
