Packaging Bans – Do they work?

Over the past few months, we have heard a lot about bans on single use plastic and foam items; things like plastic bags, drinking straws, and take out containers.  We have spent some time looking into these bans and whether or not they will actually make an impact on plastic waste.  As of right now, only about 9% of all plastic that has ever been produced has been recycled.

Reducing your Waste Costs with Balers and Compactors

Businesses are always asking us how they can reduce their waste costs.  There are options that are not always apparent.  Our first step is to shop prices with haulers, from there we negotiate with the haulers and sometimes even leave the hauler for another.  In some cases cost avoidance includes getting the client to not overfill their dumpster, close the dumpster lids, and to not place non-recyclable material into recycling dumpsters.  Contamination is bad for you, bad for the haulers and bad for the commodity market.
