Recycling Services

Looking to expand recycling in your office?


We've made it easier than ever for businesses to be planet savers.

We’re specialists in recycling for offices and work with businesses of all shapes and sizes.

From entire office towers, to retail centres and busy malls, we have been there, and are still there, working away behind the scenes to provide efficient, reliable office recycling services

Paper/Cardboard – packaging and waste paper make up over 50% of the domestic waste stream and can be even higher in offices and warehouses. Paper and cardboard are easily recycled and reused and generally simple to separate from other waste for collection.

Mixed recyclables – like your household collection, you may be ready for a mixed recyclables collection at work. This can include glass, metal and plastics.

Organics – Many offices produce organic waste. 

We make recycling at work really work

Urban Impact’s simple and reliable Office “Concierge” Program is designed to cover all your office recycling needs, from paper and cardboard, bottles and cans to food waste.

A site visit to assess the amount of waste you generate.

The first step in setting up an effective recycling program is to review your waste and figure out what is going in the trash. We’ll help you determine which products are recyclable and which ones to include in your workplace recycling initiative.

A Successful Office Recycling Program

Recycling is easy when you know how. To ensure your office recycling program succeeds, our recycling team will help you with:

  • Employee participation: We’ll provide advice on how to get all players—employees, recycling coordinators, janitorial staff, facilities managers, and others—on the same page.
  • Source separation: We’ll provide advice on how to efficiently separate your materials.
  • Clear instructions: We’ll label your bins and container with clear information about what to put in — and what to keep out.
  • Awareness building: We’ll help you promote your recycling program through signage, and lunch and learns.
  • Bin Placement: We will help you be strategic about your placement of recycling bins- they need to go in places where the most trash is generated, like copy rooms, near printers, break rooms, and in cafeterias.

A range of stylish Bins and Containers

We’ll supply you with stylish clearly labelled recycling bins and containers, whether they are for paper, Mixed Containers (glass, metal and plastics) and food waste.

A Recycling Plan designed for your needs

Tell us about your business. We can get started with a simple phone call, or conduct a site visit to take a more in-depth look and create a customized recycling plan. Here are some of the steps we take:


Free Site Visit

We come to YOU to analyze current recycling practices and get a thorough understanding of your recycling needs, diversion targets and site requirements.

Recycling Assessment

If you have multiple recycling needs, we’ll review your waste streams and recommend the most efficient and cost-effective recycling program.


We’ll provide the collection and storage bins, signage, and labels and recycling education for your recycling program.

Certificate of Diversion

At the end of each year, we provide a certificate outlining how much waste you’ve diverted from the landfill. (More on this below)

Certificate Impact


This is where your team’s hard work and dedication pays off. At the end of each year, free of charge, we provide a certificate estimating how much waste your organization has diverted. Your Certificate of Diversion shows your recycling progress year-over-year, and sets performance metrics that can be tracked and improved. It also provides water, tree and electricity savings for all paper products recycled and tracks your associated carbon savings. The certificate creates positive messaging to share with your employees and community.

Urban Impact is really pleased to announce that we have gone paperless for the 2017 Certificates. To obtain your 2017 Certificate, please send an email to reporting@urbanimpact.com
