Bekins and Classic Stereo Recycle

Bekins and Classic Stereo understand that a companies our size have the potential to make a negative impact on our environment. That is why we have made it such a priority to reuse or recycle over 90% of all waste that go through our Coopersville Service Center.


One of our favorite ways to help the environment and our community is to donate our items for new and creative uses. Here are a few recent recreations.

Bekins recently donated large appliance boxes to Coopersville Public Schools. These boxes nurtured the imagination of local preschool children as they turned them into a firetruck!

Coopersville Reformed Church was happy to have some of our cardboard boxes for their Vacation Bible School. The staff turned them into fun structures that lined the hallways of the church.

UpStreet Children's Ministries in Grand Haven took their Roman theme to new levels with the use of our cardboard boxes for chariot races!


For all items we are unable to reuse, we recycle! Our Coopersville Service and Distribution Center was specifically designed to be able to house the storage space, cardboard balers and other machinery necessary to recycle cardboard, cores, plastic ties and film, styrofoam and old appliances.

This is not a money making effort for us but we truly believe in the cause and enjoy seeing how large of an impact our recyclables are making.

Our recycling efforts from January through June of 2017 have helped save:

  • 107,170 gallons of water
  • 94,218 KWH of energy
  • 1,209 gallons of oil
  • 919 pounds of air pollution effluents
  • 260 trees
  • 51 cubic yards of landfill space

Below is a full report of what Bekins and Classic Stereo have recycled and the resources saved for the first half of 2017.
