Zero Waste is defined differently by each client. Some clients define it as no material or only a small percentage of material that can be sent to landfill; some clients define it as no incineration; and some clients define it more in terms of the practices of their facilities and the culture of their people.
No matter how Zero Waste is defined, Complete Recycling is dedicated to helping organizations reach their Zero Waste goals. Whether it’s locating alternative outlets to landfill, implementing cost-reducing solutions, or helping to establish a sustainability goal or budget, contact us to learn about how we can help.
