Going green saves a lot more than the planet

You want to protect the environment and your operating budget at the same time. We have good news: it actually costs less to recycle than to dispose of waste. We should know. We’ve been recycling and hauling trash for companies just like yours for over half a century. We were going green before going green was cool. We’ve wrestled with the problems; we’ve come up with the solutions. And we’re ready to reveal them to you.

We’ve learned how to make recycling even more cost-effective by customizing, computerizing and economizing your recycling services. We’ve taken the waste out of waste control, streamlining and optimizing the entire process. We run a tight ship with one of the most technologically advanced and cost-efficient operations in the Southwest.

Along the way, we’ve learned a lot about earth-friendly practices and steps we can all take to lessen our impact on the environment. We’d like to share some of that information with you here, starting with a handy little device for calculating your business’ impact on the environment, followed with a few facts and tips for doing the green thing.
