Senior Service Program

We understand that the rising cost of recycling and garbage service may create a financial hardship for seniors who rely on a fixed income. We also recognize that many seniors do not produce a significant amount of material.

To address these situations we’ve created the Senior Service Program. This program is not ideal for every senior citizen, however, it does offer significant savings for those meet the following guidelines:

  • You are 65 or older
  • You use a 20-gallon can

Please note: if you do have occasional extra trash, it should be placed in a separate bag. Extra trash will be charged at the current applicable rate.

Please contact us for current rates or to sign up.

Audits and Consultations
Our team helps businesses apply best management practices in collecting recycling, compost 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, state and local recycling requirements and best practices for minimizing your waste stream.
  • Conduct audits of your waste stream to suggest bin sizing and reduced costs
  • Customize your service options and equipment to meet your needs
  • Provide signs, fliers, stickers, internal containers and staff training and presentations, at no additional cost

We are familiar with assisting all business types–from office buildings, hotels and hospitality, restaurants, hospitals, and shopping centers to large commercial residential properties (Multi-Family Dwellings).
