According to this article at STLtoday.com, recycling efforts throughout St. Louis are growing at a snail’s pace – costing the region and businesses like yours lost productivity and lost profits. But together, we can change that with cost-reducing, easy to implement solutions.
Single-Stream Recycling, while convenient, can be a costly undertaking. It requires large capital investments from recycling & hauling companies for compactor vehicles, logistics, state-of-the art sorting equipment and thousands of various containers for placement at customer sites. One of the largest ongoing costs for recyclers is the labor necessary for the collection & sorting process.
While this sounds daunting – and expensive – from the customer standpoint, we propose an alternative focus. Our efficient, low-cost single-stream recycling bin service has created savings opportunities and convenience in one solution. Imagine removing large monthly expenses for recycling or trash dumpsters and replacing them with recycling bins for your business, office, warehouse, school, or apartment/condo complex. The savings from converting to our concierge or “valet” bin service can provide lower expense management AND provide highly-convenient, interior or exterior collection points for all of your recyclables.
Today’s work environments generate mostly recyclable waste. The main contaminant cause is food waste, which is readily solved. Food waste can be rinsed or scraped out into one or more bin services by either a compost bin service or utilizing a designated trash bin. The percentage of true waste produced from a typical business environment is extremely low.
If your business does happen to produce true landfill waste, our recycling services can be customized to solve those few items that cannot be placed in a recycling bin. The savings and convenience add to your business’ bottom-line and provide for more efficient collection methods. The efficiency can reduce internal costs by limiting staff time and efforts for transporting recyclables and waste to outside dumpsters. Our staff can even help augment your maintenance or cleaning staff, thereby lowering costs even further.
