Healthcare facilities generate the most unique and challenging waste streams possible. At the Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veterans Hospital, not only is our hospital waste stream diversified and unusual, our potential recyclables are as well. Our facility generates and recycles paper, cardboard, wood, glass, metal, plastics, rubber, textiles, construction and demolition debris, batteries, fluorescent lamps, and more. If it can be recycled, we are recycling it.

David Maine
In June 1996, I approached Greg Conigliaro of Conigliaro Industries about developing a total recycling program—I knew nothing about recycling. Greg has a vast store of knowledge and an enthusiastic interest in sharing that knowledge. Step-by-step, Greg helped us put together a total recycling program.

Since our partnership, Conigliaro Industries and our dedicated hospital “Green Team” have developed one of the most successful hospital recycle programs in the country. Our recycle program won the MassRecycle Institutional Recycling Award. We were presented at The National Recycling Coalition two years in a row. We received two Certificates of Achievement from the Federal Environmental Executive and we have been nominated for the White House Closing the Circle 2000 Award. In fiscal year 1999, we recycled 950,564 pounds of materials—an incredible 46% of out total waste stream!

I cannot say enough about the leadership and professionalism of Greg Conigliaro and Conigliaro Industries.

We initiated operations in cooperation with Conigliaro Industries in late summer of 1998. The assistance providing in implementing our program was invaluable. The actual physical inspection of our plant and the suggestions it brought insured a solid beginning was realized.

Our recycling operations encompass the entire plant from front office and warehouse to the many and varied extrusion lines. Working hand-in-hand with Conigliaro Industries, we have reduced our separate compactor pick-ups by 90 percent and our actual trash disposal weight by 66 percent.

This program has been a success both in terms of cash saved and in regards to the environment. Atlantic Extrusions is a proud partner to Conigliaro Industries in an ongoing effort to insure a clean future for our children.

Guild Drilling Co., Inc.
East Providence, Rhode Island

As you know, in the drilling industry, the repair of boreholes in asphalt is a daily occurrence. Your product, Boston's Best Patch, because of its consistency and ease of handling in hot and cold weather has made these repairs a cinch. I strongly recommend Boston's Best Patch to anyone needing repairs as a result of boring or excavating operations in existing asphalt. It is the most convenient and cost-effective method I have found for quick and lasting repairs.

Weston Public Schools
Weston, Massachusetts

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your services. I appreciate your quick response in the past to all pickup requests, as well as your efforts to keep the rates as low as possible for school systems. You have been a valuable resource on recycling and related issues.

—Penny Theall, Director of Food Services

Framingham High School
Framingham, Massachusetts

I wanted to take the time to thank Conigliaro Industries for helping us to recycle at the high school. Specifically, your company’s efforts in helping us dispose consciously of over 1,000 old math text books is much appreciated.

Even more exciting is given the success of the recycling efforts of the Math Department, Framingham High School has decided to recycle even more textbooks on a school-wide basis.

Thanks again for your efforts. Keep up the great work in trying to conserve the limited resources that the world has to offer.

—Jeffrey Gaglione, Math Department

Coastsweep Kickoff
The Commonwealth of Massachusetts

The 1990 Coastsweep Kickoff was a great success thanks to your support! Although the day got off to a rainy start, it certainly didn’t dampen the spirits of the enthusiastic volunteers that came out to keep our Massachusetts beaches clean.

Your contribution of adding a recycling component to the cleanup effort was invaluable. We appreciate your generosity and the cooperation displayed by your fine staff. Your concern and commitment to our environment and the community is a great example to other business leaders.

—Michael S. Dukakis, former Governor

Framingham, Massachusetts

Please allow me to take this opportunity to thank you for the very informative tour of your facilities. The courtesies extended to our group from MARSHALLS were deeply appreciated. I also found your explanation of each of the many tasks that you perform to be extremely interesting. Couple this with the sheer magnitude of your entire operation, it is clear why your company is a leader in its field.

Thank you again. We were all truly impressed.
