Who We Are

Hello there, thank you for stopping by. My name is Matthew Granger. I own and operate Resourceful Recycling, which is based in Arlington, Vermont.  The business is fully insured.  The services we offer include clean-outs, light hauling (for example, furniture pick up / delivery) and organizational assistance.  We can also be there as an extra set of hands for a project if you are in need.

I started my business in 1998 after seeing members of my local community, placing items at the curb-side that I felt did not belong there. So many of these items could have been reused or recycled, there had to be a better way. Thus Resourceful Recycling was born and I resolved to do my best to save things from being thrown out.


We primarily serve the real estate market in and around Bennington County, Vermont, but we are willing to travel further to serve our customers as needed. We assist families and small business owners when they are in need of someone to remove unwanted items, or to move items from one place to another.

Our goal is to work with each customer to evaluate their specific needs. If you are preparing a house for sale and need it emptied out, or just have too much stuff cluttering your garage, we can help.  Do you need a loveseat picked up from an estate sale?  We can help with that too.  We offer a variety of services and as we grow, we will offer even more. Please refer to our Services page to see what we can do for you.

You can reach us at (802) 681-5601 or recyclingvt@gmail.com.

Our Mission

Aside from customer satisfaction, our primary focus is to take the items we remove and find a reuse for the greatest percentage possible. That is why we say that “we give your trash a second chance”.  We do this through a variety of relationships and resources that we have established over the years.  Our goal is to perform quality work in an orderly fashion and to seek out ways to continually improve our day to day operations.   Resourceful Recycling is committed to protecting the environment. It is our goal to divert as much waste as possible from entering the local waste stream. Through our efforts of reuse and recycling, we strive to improve our local communities in hopes that we will have a far-reaching impact on the environment.
