About Us

Innovative & Sustainable Solutions

LJP Waste Solutions is a zero landfill, environmental services company. Since 1993, LJP has been helping large manufacturing companies reach their sustainability goals. We provide commercial waste services, and we convert your waste-to-energy to provide clean fuel.

To help our customers reach their sustainability goals, we perform waste evaluations to determine what can be recycled. From there, we sort the recyclable materials, bale them, and sell them on the market. If certain materials cannot be recycled or sold, we convert the remaining products to clean fuel using our waste-to-energy methods. From there, we give you detailed reports explaining how much waste recycling you had by category, and how much was converted into clean energy.

Working Toward a Sustainable Future

Since we opened our doors, we have been working toward building a sustainable future. At LJP Waste Solutions, we aim to prevent waste disposal in landfills. We actively partake in the zero landfill initiative.

When you choose to work with LJP, we evaluate your current processes and create a plan to improve your operation. Our team will help you recycle the uncommon materials your facility acquires, as well as convert any residual materials to fuel.

With our process of recycling uncommon materials and converting combustible materials into Refuse-Derived Fuel, we are able to:

  • Preserve natural resources
  • Prevent landfills from filling
  • Eliminate the use of fossil fuels
  • And More

By choosing our team, you can reduce your company’s carbon footprint and contribute to the future.

Refuse-Derived Fuel (RDF)

After we have processed and sorted the waste from your company, we will either turn to common recycling processes or convert the waste into energy to fuel power plants.

Refuse-derived fuel is formed by separating combustible from noncombustible particles in your waste. The combustible materials are sent to Xcel Energy’s plants to be used as clean energy. Noncombustible materials are recycled to be used again, which keeps them out of landfills. Xcel has multiple power plants throughout the country, including many in Minnesota.

At this point in time, two Minnesota power plants use RDF as their main source of energy, while the others use solar and wind energy. The two plants that primarily use RDF are in Red Wing and the one we work with, the Wilmarth Power Plant in Mankato.

What Other Services Do We Offer?

In addition to our primary work, we offer many other services. In some areas, we do home-to-home trash and recycling pick-up, like traditional waste services companies. However, we do not offer these services to our whole territory.

When you choose our team at LJP for your project, we immerse ourselves fully and make your company our top priority. We don’t simply explain our services and offer you a quote. Our team will show you our services, explaining step-by-step how we will help you reach your sustainability goals. We will provide you with a solution, not just an idea. Our method is proven, and by choosing our team, you can be part of the future of waste solutions.
