IDENTIFY AND REDUCE CONTAMINATION

Ensure your company sends clean, high-quality recyclable materials through our domestic infrastructure by automatically identifying when a team member or guest throws away non-recyclable material into any dumpster to take corrective action. While the most common infractions include e-waste and bulky items, even too many trash bags in a recycling dumpster can send a whole load to the landfill instead of the recycling processing facility.

Diversion from landfill

ACHIEVE ZERO WASTE GOALS

Reduce waste to landfills by making sure recyclable materials are disposed of correctly. Waste characterization technology not only identifies incorrect disposal and let’s you take corrective action, but also shows you material type trends and patterns across your organization so you can make system-wide changes, like making sure all cardboard doesn’t end up at landfills.
