Recycling Business Waste

Keeping recyclable and compostable materials out of the garbage is an excellent first step toward cost savings and improved operational efficiency. In Alameda County, it is easy to set up recycling service for the most commonly generated materials, such as cardboard, mixed paper, bottles, cans, food scraps and plant debris. Many waste haulers collect these ”standard” recyclables at a discounted rate or at no additional charge if a business or organization is also a commercial garbage collection service customer. StopWaste can also help you find services for materials not accepted through standard commercial recycling programs and offers free assistance to help you make recycling improvements at your business.
