Waste reduction and recycling programs are on the rise across the country. In 2008 more than 33 percent of municipal solid waste generated was recycled, an increase of over 23 percent since 1980. Many states and municipalities are starting to mandate that individuals and companies implement strategies to reduce their landfill-bound waste and help preserve the country’s natural resources.
Waste Management offers a complete comprehensive waste and recycling solution that helps our clients move toward zero waste, comply with state and local ordinances and reduce operational costs.
