Milliron operates on an 18-acre facility with 40,000 square feet under roof, and employs 26 individuals.  

“The Team PRP family of recyclers is the right choice for Milliron to be aligned with,” explained Karl Milliron. “Over the last several years, we have seen major industry shifts that have changed the landscape in which we operate. I have watched the Team PRP organization grow over the years, and I am excited about the direction in which it is heading and the leadership taking it there.  By joining Team PRP, we help preserve our existence in this industry and allow ourselves the best opportunity for profitability.”
