Commercial Recycling, Compost & Garbage Services

Recology companies provide various resource recovery programs (i.e., recycling, composting) and garbage (landfill-bound) collection services to commercial customers.

Recology provides different sizes and types of carts, bins, debris boxes, compactors and balers to make sure each business we serve has the containers and equipment that meet their needs.  Our number one focus is our customer.  Recology strives to provide service at times most convenient for our commercial customers.

We understand the space constraints our customers face, so we take care to return containers we service to locations most convenient for the businesses we serve.

 

Recycling

Businesses currently recycle less than 25% of the waste they generate, meaning 75% is being disposed in a landfill.  Our goal is to assist our commercial customers in reducing the amount of true garbage that is destine for the landfill and increasing the recovery of recyclable materials for product reuse or remanufacturing.

To help your business develop an efficient recycling program, our expert team will help assess and select the most cost-effective container type, size and service configuration possible to meet your company's needs.

Recycle, Compost, Garbage Toters and Bins

Recology wants to help your company act responsibly with the waste generated at your facility.  Demonstrate to your customers and employees that you care about your company's impact on the environment and let us help you become an environmental steward.

Compost

Recology takes pride in perfecting the production of compost from food scraps and yard trimmings that have been discarded.  Diverting organic material from the waste stream significantly reduces the global warming impact from landfills, as decomposing food waste is a major source of the greenhouse gas methane.

We make it possible for the communities we serve to increase their diversion rates by converting the organic material collected into a nutrient-rich soil amendment, which is the best and highest use of these resources.  No longer are these materials landfill-bound.

 

Why Use Compost?

Fruits & Vegetables

Sustainable agriculture is nurtured by compost made from food scraps and yard trimmings and returned to farms and vineyards as rich, dark soil amendments that return nutrients to the earth and nourish the fruits and vegetables we eat and drink.

Farmers, vineyard managers, landscapers and nurseries, agree that Recology compost products:

 

  • Enhance microbial activity and add nutrients to the soil.
  • Increase drainage in clay soils and water retention in sandy soils.
  • Stimulate leafy growth and succulence.
  • Promote strong root systems and build disease resistance.
  • Revitalize old soils and clean up chemical contamination.

 

Compost Pile

Our nutrient-rich soil amendments are created from diverse feedstock and can be custom blended to meet each grower's individual needs.  Recology also provides consultation services to customers who wish to optimize their soil amendment blend with minerals and other supplements to meet their dynamic cultivating needs.

Contact Recology to obtain information about purchasing compost and/or the consulting services we provide.


Garbage

Although we make every attempt to increase the items we recycle and compost, there are still items where the best and highest use of these items have not yet been determined.  Unfortunately, these items must be placed in a gray or black cart or bin, and transported to a landfill.

Recology is committed to moving away from disposal by following the path to use less of what we have, and get more from what we use.  It is our belief that to be truly sustainable, actions must be economically feasible, socially just, and environmentally friendly.

Let Recology help your company configure a service that minimizes the materials you currently send to the landfill and optimizes the resources that can be recovered for beneficial use.
