lautenbach recycling

A simple, sustainable idea

Turning scrap drywall into bedding for dairy cattle - that's the idea that Troy Lautenbach, an unemployed, broke college graduate, had way back in April of 1991. With that idea, a company called T&T Recovery was born and we have been leading the way in recycling ever since.

A family-owned Company

Eight years later, in 1999, it was obvious that larger equipment and better trucks were needed. Along with his brother Torrey, Troy started Lauts, Inc. and began hauling commingled construction debris. Their mission to improve recycling and sustainability was well underway!

Since then, Lautenbach Recycling has grown to over 50 employees operating 13 roll-off trucks, five live floor trailers, four excavators, and a large fleet of other vehicles and supporting equipment including over 250 roll-off boxes. We serve contractors, businesses, and individuals through the I-5 corridor with a reputation for outstanding service at affordable rates.
