Single Stream Recycling for Commercial and Industrial Customers
Single stream recycling means all “blue box” recyclables can be mixed together in one container – thus eliminating the need for multiple toters or containers to collect the different recyclable material streams. This means both cost and space savings.
The sorting then happens at one of our advanced, state-of-the-art recycling facilities. Only a handful of these single stream recycling facilities exist in Canada, and Emterra operates three of them.
The convenience of single stream recycling makes it easy for your owners and staff to increase the amount of what would otherwise be waste that you recycle. Implementing a comprehensive single stream recycling program is essential if you are considering a Zero Waste strategy or are looking to reduce waste disposal costs.
