Business Waste Audits and Consultations
Our Waste Zero Team helps businesses apply best management practices in collecting recycling, composting and landfill materials. We provide a single point of contact to help you implement new recycling programs or improve your existing program and make sure you have the resources you need.

Depending on your type of business or residential property, the team will:

      • Visit your site to discuss sustainability goals and potential space requirements/restraints
      • Conduct audits of your waste stream to suggest bin sizing and reduce costs
      • Customize your service options and equipment to meet your needs
      • Provide signs, fliers, stickers, and training at no additional cost

The Waste Zero Team is familiar with assisting all business types–from office buildings, hotels and hospitality, restaurants, hospitals, and shopping centers to large commercial residential properties.

Waste Audits
Our waste audits help businesses and organizations save money and conserve resources. Because recycling service costs significantly less than garbage collection, most businesses and organizations save money by wasting less and recycling more. Customers save even more by separating food and yard waste or by reducing waste altogether.

Recology CleanScapes will collect natural, undecorated, unflocked trees in lengths up to 6 feet from customers who subscribe to every-other-week food and yard waste collection.  No special arrangements are necessary; just put your tree curbside on your regular food and yard waste collection day.

Flocked trees are not accepted in food and yard waste collection.  The flocking can often contain non-compostable materials including adhesives, flame retardant, or additives to make the flocking glitter and shine.  Flocked trees are considered garbage, and are not accepted at tree recycling facilities.
