Back Mountain Natural Heat is a subsidiary of EIO Waste and Recycling Solutions, which was started over 20 years ago by the Ide family.
We come from a family of entrepreneurs that believed in an honest days pay for an honest days work, and in treating our customers with respect…how we would want to be treated. But as I am sure you know, hard work does not always equate to a steady income. This was the place we found ourselves in the early 90s when we were running a paving business, and its inevitable seasonality.
Above and beyond simply supporting our young family, we were looking for a way to give back to our community, our church, and the missions organizations that our church supported. EIO was just the opportunity that we were seeking.
What started with a little risk and a lot of faith as we invested into property, trucks, and dumpsters has transformed into a blossoming business. Although it may seem unrelated, the coal business was a natural transition. We had the trucks, drivers, the space to store the product, and with our areas history with coal, there is certainly a lot of people burning coal.
Today, we proudly serve the Back Mountain and Greater Wilkes Barre areas with rice, pea, chestnut, and stove coal by delivery, in bulk or bag via pickup at our back Mountain location on highway 309 / Tunkhannock Highway, as well as by bag at select area stores.
