Shredding, Recycling and Media Destruction Services

A part of the Wausau community since the Fall of 1989, IROW (pronounced eye-row) was awarded the Small Business of the Year Award in 1998. First known as Industrial Recyclers of Wisconsin, Cory Tomczyk, president and owner, decided to simplify the name, and go instead by their abbreviation. That name has stuck, and is now synonymous with a dependable, honest team of waste management professionals.
