Services for Businesses & Apartments/Condos

Our Waste Zero Team helps commercial and multi-unit properties apply best management practices to the collection of recyclable, compostable, and garbage materials. We believe in making green and blue your go-to! Materials in your recycling and compost bins are diverted from the landfill and turned into new products or enriching compost. For more information about what goes where, click here!

The Waste Zero Team will:

  • Conduct an audit of your waste stream to determine waste diversion opportunities
  • Provide tailored recommendations to help you reduce waste and save money
  • Provide indoor and outdoor signage, indoor color coordinated containers, and staff training
