Perhaps you are cleaning out a company storage space, or a commercial tenant has moved out, or you are undergoing a renovation. Many businesses deal with bulk waste by getting a 20-30 yard open-top dumpster. The problem is that the contents of that dumpster may end up in a landfill.
Not only is this wasteful, but every ton of material placed in the dumpster is probably being reported as “trash.” This means your diversion report will show a zero diversion from landfill for that particular load.
In the Mid-Atlantic region, Great Forest has found a better way to deal with bulk trash – a service that promises to divert collected materials from the landfill, with no pre-sorting required from you.
Located in Alexandria, VA, Ace Recycling delivers an ordinary open-top container, which they haul away when filled to their facility, where the load is sorted for recycling, donation, and trash.
Great Forest works with the service to get accurate metrics, which is included in your diversion report. Incorporating this data moves the needle up on your quarterly diversion-from-landfill numbers, which may contribute to LEED and other sustainability efforts.
This service works well as a replacement for any typical 30-yard roll-off dumpster that ends up in the landfill.
It is a hassle-free way of taking a previously-unsustainable practice and optimizing its sustainability with little or no price premium.
