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 simple, sustainable idea
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!
Now, with nearly 50 employees, 10 roll-off trucks, 4 live floor trailers, 4 excavators, and a large fleet of other vehicles and equipment including over 200 roll off boxes, Lautenbach Industries serves contractors, businesses, and individuals all up and down the I-5 corridor. Troy has received the 2005 Washington State Recycling Association Recycler of the Year Award, and the whole Lautenbach Industries family looks forward to working with you!
