temarry recycling

Welcome to Temarry Recycling

Founded in 1998 by Matt and Teresa Songer, Temarry Recycling Inc., is the first permitted company serving the Western United States to be authorized by the U.S. EPA per the provisions of part 262 subpart E section 262.53 of the CFR title 40 to export hazardous waste for recycling in Mexico.

Located just outside of San Diego California, Temarry serves the business communities of the Western United States. We utilize our transportation assets for door to door and cradle to grave service. Temarry’s services involve two primary processes:

  • The retrieval of clean, usable solvents from waste products by distillation
  • The reduction or complete elimination of hazardous wastes using our Waste to Energy thermal treatment system. Our system utilizes valuable energy from solid hazardous waste.

With the Temarry process, expensive solvents can be recovered and sold back into industry for reuse, thereby eliminating the need for costly disposal or inefficient fuel blending.

Temarry Recycling offers the highest level of sustainability and the opportunity for industry to reduce their carbon footprint.
