Waste Reduction Resources

Restoring faith, efficiency, and effectiveness in your waste reduction programs.

“Because you don’t have to divert waste you don’t create, recycling should be your last option after reduction, reuse, restoration, repair, replace, etc.”

Are you getting paid for your recyclables?

Does your collection method provide end-users with reliable, high quality, feedstock?

Are the working conditions safe for recycling employees?

How transparent is your recycling program?

If your contamination rates are in the double digits, your answer to the above questions is probably NO. That means it’s time to regain control of your recyclables and turn them back into assets.

“If it can’t be reduced, reused, repaired, rebuilt, refurbished, refinished, resold, recycled or composted, then it should be restricted, redesigned or removed from production.”
- Pete Seeger

A well run drop off center will turn your waste into valuable assets.
