Smart Recycling

Our team has created six simple steps to ensure your retail program succeeds.

Make It Easy

Our team will provide you with the right bins for your space. We have many different options to suit your specific needs, making it easy for everyone to participate.


We provide in-person or virtual educational training sessions, in a lunch and learn format. This is an opportunity for your staff to learn a lot of information and gain a clear understanding of your custom solution works.

Signage and App

Well-defined signage and labels make participation is easy. We provide “Yes” and “No” lists to place around your location. Our Recycling App will assist your team, customers, and janitorial staff to find out if a material is recyclable and where to put it.


Location, Location, Location

It sounds simple but finding the right spot to place the collection containers is a key to successful engagement and overall success of your program. Our team will assist you in finding that location.
