Why Work With Us?

Our approach to waste consulting and management is customer-centric. All of our trash management solutions are designed to meet the unique needs of each facility we serve.


We help our clients optimize and fine-tune their garbage and recycle programs by developing and implementing comprehensive solutions that lower waste costs, increase recycling, educate building occupants, and empower our clients to reach their sustainability goals.


In our 20+ year history, we’ve built a reputation for high-quality, results-oriented garbage and recycle programs. Here are a few examples:

  • Reduced Kimco Realty’s disposal costs by more than $800,000 per year for a multi-tenant retail facility

  • Enabled a 6,000-employee Lockheed Martin facility to reduce waste disposal costs by more than $250,000 annually and increase its diversion rate from 25% to 80%

  • Upgraded SL Green’s entire 4 million square foot suburban NYC portfolio to single-stream recycling  

  • Expanded Zero Waste program at a GM/Toyota facility to divert an additional 1000 tons from the landfill each year

  • Developed Zero Waste roadmap and provided Zero Waste certification for multiple Thermofisher facilities in the U.S. and abroad

  • Created a waste reduction template for Aldo Shoes stores throughout the U.S., providing a roadmap to increase diversion from 42% to 82% nationwide
