From the initial site visit to staff training, our Organics Recycling experts will work with you to ensure step-by-step program success. We provide specifically designed Waste Management containers and trucks, as well as the training and support necessary to ensure a successful program. We then transport your food and other organic materials to a special facility where it will be turned into compost, other soil amendments, energy, or other valued products.
