Curbside & Multi-Family Waste Collection

Curbside & Multi-Family Collection

Municipal solid waste collection services need to adapt to changes in our ever growing communities. City managers and residents demand reliable, high quality waste collection services for their tax dollars. Private multi-unit residential property managers expect the same value for money. Emterra is a waste management company that delivers!

Trash, Recycling or Compost – We Want It!

We’re innovators in the waste management industry and may be able to find opportunities to provide more efficient collections at lower costs and a better environmental footprint than your municipality’s existing waste program.  We operate some of the most advanced waste truck fleets and material recovery facilities (MRFs) globally.

Our municipal partners tell us our waste collection services are different and better from the rest:

  • Residents receive quality customer service in the communities we serve.
  • Our unique processes and technologies divert more garbage from landfills than their previous waste programs.
  • We lower their costs.

We often achieve “waste management success” differently for each municipality – it depends on your municipality’s goals and priorities first. In some communities, our low carbon emission collection trucks, such as our compressed natural gas fleets, have driven cost savings and reduced the overall environmental impact of solid waste programs. In other communities, introducing single stream recycling programs, which allow residents to conveniently put all recyclables in one bin, have driven increased recycling rates in some municipalities by 40%.

It’s about time to rethink your municipality’s waste management plan.

We all try to reduce garbage in our lives but when there’s junk to dump, make sure it goes to the right place. See if no sort – single stream recycling can make things easier. Put all your recyclables into the same bin to save time and space. Plus, reduce more away from the landfill! Yard and organic waste might be a big portion of your garbage bin now. Reducing your carbon footprint with compost may even reduce your overall waste management costs by taking the weight out of the garbage bin!

Sustainability throughout Our Business

We believe in reducing the waste in our lives – we believe in Zero Waste. It’s not just what we do; it’s how we do it! By using alternative fuels in our fleets (like compressed natural gas and biodiesel) and employing innovative processes and technology in our recycling facilities, we continuously set new environmental standards for the industry. Learn more
