Zero Waste Consulting
With the increasing amount of waste that individuals, businesses and communities are generating in addition to rising costs associated with the diminishing number of available landfills, our society faces unprecedented challenges in dealing with waste management and removal.
Recyclaholics provides zero waste consulting to help in dealing with these issues. With many years of industry and field experience, our consulting team will work diligently to assess the nature of your waste stream. In the process, we can divert a large portion of waste to composting facilities and in many cases can reduce the costs your operation incurs with its current system of waste removal. Further strategies include the introduction of recycling programs, training and education seminars and the use of biodegradable and compostable food service ware and packaging to replace petro-chemical based counterparts.
The movement to diverting organic waste (food, biodegradable materials, etc.) from landfills is underway. In many areas, disposal fees for organic waste are less expensive or equal to standard garbage collection fees. In the near future, municipalities will make it more cost effective to put zero waste practices into effect in efforts to divert waste from landfills, as landfill space rapidly diminishes.
