Green Works Named Michigan Green Leader by Detroit Free Press

April 16, 2011

Green Works recently received the honor of being named among The 2011 Michigan Green Leaders by The Detroit Free Press. An honor bestowed annually since 2010 to individuals, companies or groups the publication feels do work that creates a healthier place to live and an economy that sustains resources and jobs. 


What is Green Works?

Detroit-based Goodwill’s Green Works, Inc. offers cost-saving, labor-intensive asset recovery and industrial recycling services to socially conscious municipalities, utilities, automotive suppliers and manufacturers, as well as construction and demolition companies.

It is a non-profit subsidiary of Goodwill Industries of Greater Detroit and produces revenue to fund vital job training, education and placement programs for those facing employment challenges in Metro Detroit.

Located in a 94,000-square-foot industrial facility on Detroit’s east side, Green Works began operations in 2010. State-of-the-art equipment and processes make the company an invaluable resource for sorting, refurbishing, recycling and reprocessing metals, oils and other industrial materials.

Green Works lowers material costs for clients and reduces waste by breaking down industrial recyclables into their most raw form. These materials are then resold in commodity markets or reused in the manufacturing process.

In 2011 alone, the company processed more than 12 million lbs. of steel, aluminum, copper and other materials.
