Recycled Product Manufacturer Bringing New Jobs to Tobyhanna

Pocono Mountains Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Chuck Leonard says that the opening of a new recycled product manufacturing facility in 2014 will create a number of new jobs.

Waste Not Technologies, LLC today broke ground on October 11 for a new 12,000 square foot manufacturing facility in the Pocono Mountains Corporate Center (PMCC) East in Coolbaugh Township, PA.

The company received a $500,000 Local Share Account (LSA) grant drawn from revenues generated by Mount Airy Resort and Casino and distributed by the Commonwealth Financing Authority. Waste Not is using a portion of the grant to help cover construction costs of a manufacturing center where recycled plastic, mostly in the form of milk jugs, will be used to manufacture post and rail fence. The remaining grant funds are directed toward the purchase of additional equipment for the company’s expanded operations.

“Patrick Kelley (owner of Waste Not Technologies) was committed to getting this facility off the ground here in Monroe County,” says Leonard, “and this new facility will help him to increase production and add jobs. He and his company truly represent the kind of entrepreneur and small business that the LSA grants are designed to encourage. We’re looking forward to his success and continued growth here at PMCC East.”

Waste Not Technologies is a family owned business that currently operates out of a pilot plant facility in Saylorsburg, PA. The company’s brown plastic rail posts are designed to be durable and hide dirt and mildew, ensuring that the fence remains aesthetically appealing for many years. The fencing is sold through Close The Loop Company located in Kunkletown, PA.
