Back in 1991, our founder Troy Lautenbach was an unemployed college graduate who had an idea. Instead of dumping scrap drywall in the landfill, Troy asked the question: “What if you could take that drywall and turn it into bedding for dairy cattle?”

From that first simple idea, and from Troy’s passion for sustainable waste management, reusability, and stewardship, T & T Recovery was born. When the business had outgrown its early days, Troy’s brother, Torrey, joined him in business and T & T Recovery became Lauts, Inc.

Today, 30 years later, and as Lautenbach Recycling, Troy and Torrey continue to ask the question “What If”, continue to innovate, and continue to provide outstanding service and waste solutions for homes and businesses throughout Washington state and the surrounding Pacific Northwest.

As a society, we’ve all become more and more accustomed to convenience; we’ve also become complacent to the waste that we create. We continue to see plastic drink bottles, canned foods, product packaging, glass bottles and jars being discarded. Our landfill space is limited, and in some cases shrinking rapidly.

We’ll continue to be tenacious in our pursuit of solutions, and passionate about sustainability.
