A simple idea, a one-step solution for saving your business time, money, and natural resources.
Saves TIME: your employees toss all of their recyclables into a single container—and we take care of the sorting.
Saves MONEY: all you pay for is transport.
Saves NATURAL RESOURCES: your recyclables become new products, instead of getting buried in a landfill.

  • Single-stream recycling conserves more natural resources conserved and decreases raw materials used.
  • More recycling means less trash delivered to trash-to-energy facilities or trucked to out-of-state landfills.
  • Easier recycling means greater employee participation that drives up recycling rates and reduces trash disposal, lowering costs to businesses and municipalities
