The recycling and reuse programs we offer at U.S. Waste Industries provide customers with an economically feasible and environmentally conscious waste disposal option. As recycling technology improves and the cost of virgin material as well as waste disposal increases, recycling has become more economical. With an extensive nationwide industrial network, we are uniquely positioned to find innovative outlets for customer waste. Flammable waste can be blended into fuel supplies to provide valuable energy. Metals and liquid chemicals can often be separated and recovered for reuse. Solvent recovery and acid reuse save costly disposal fees and help preserve the environment.
Fluorescent bulbs, which contain mercury, can be recycled at a lower cost than manufacturing new bulbs. This saves customers money while keeping heavy metals out of the water supply. We have been very successful at setting up comprehensive recycling and reuse programs that help customers reduce waste and meet their lean manufacturing goals. Whether it is meeting regulatory compliance standards or reducing costs, our team can be an integral part of a comprehensive waste stream management system.
