Trash collection is a dirty job, but somebody has to do it. Enter Unified Reclamation, a company that has built a system-wide empire on a solid, profitable foundation of garbage.
Unified Reclamation is the only private enterprise able to claim salvage rights without navigating an Alliance bureaucratic nightmare, partially because UR lobbying and pressure has ensured that the process for obtaining government salvage licences is just that. Through its unique sole-sourced franchise, Unified Reclamation offers local salvage operators an opportunity to cut through the bureaucratic red tape (for a premium, of course).
Unified Reclamation is powerful enough to influence politics on a number of worlds, including Athens, Beylix, and Boros. It is also extremely jealous of its salvage privileges – woe betide the outlaw scrapper who finds himself on UR’s radar.
