Waste Zero Services

Audits and Consultations
Let us help you design a service configuration that meets your recycling, composting or garbage (landfill-bound) collection needs. Our objectives are to increase your recycling and diversion practices as well as to decrease the amount of material that is landfill-bound.

Our Waste Zero Specialist team begins by conducting an on-site waste audit to help your company apply the best management practices to the material discarded. Based on your audit results, we make recommendations on how to reduce your collection expense and positively impact the environment.

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.
