A History of Continued Growth
Living Earth Technology Company (Living Earth) started in 1985 with our first location in Houston, Texas. The company was purchased by Republic Services, Inc. (NYSE:RSG) in 1991 and in the same year added Dallas Organic Products and International Stone & Materials (now Living Earth in Missouri City, Texas).
Triple A Mulch (now Living Earth in The Woodlands) was added in 1995. Two larger companies were added beginning with CJM The Soil Supermarket in March 1996 and Elliott’s Agri-Service in May 1997. Living Earth was purchased by Hunt Special Situations Group, a private investment firm, and management in 2007.
From 2008-2012, four new sites were added, expanding the total to 20 locations: twelve in the Houston area, seven in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and one in Pineland (East Texas). In 2011, Living Earth partnered with NGP Energy Technology Partners.
LIVING EARTH AND GREEN MATERIAL RECYCLING
Returning tree limbs, brush, leaves and grass clippings to beneficial reuse for over 20 years, Living Earth is the largest recycler of green material in Texas. As consumers and municipalities are becoming increasingly aware, recycling green material reduces landfill use, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, promotes water conservation and returns organic material back into the environment.
In 2007, Living Earth recycled over 500,000 tons of green material, the equivalent of taking 60,000 passenger cars off of the road for one year. We invite everyone to join us in recycling to keep our communities beautiful and preserve the environment for generations to come.
