Owned and operated by Jim Smith, President, Steve Hawn, CEO, and based out of Escanaba in the beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan, SGT’S Recycling Inc. is so much more than your every-day recycling facility. Jim is the main driving force for the vision of SGT’s. He is a service connected, honorably discharged, disabled Veteran from the United States Army. While waiting for his orders to ship out to fight in Desert Storm he was asked to join the RIP program. A night jump from a helicopter during training resulted in a back injury that brought a sudden halt to his ability to deploy with his fellow infantry men.
