Step 1 - GATHER INFO
Contact one of our local EcoRewards Commercial Recycling Experts. Our sales representative will help identify and gather the information needed to start building a tailored recycling solution. Ideally, we would like to gather at a minimum the following:

  • Number of Employees
  • Total facility square footage
  • Copy of 1 month's waste invoicing and reporting to identify the total volume of waste and recycling material generated at the site.

Step 2 - SITE SURVEY
Our sales representative will help you survey the facility to identify the following:

  • Where and what types of materials are generated
  • Common area needs such as copier rooms and cafeteria
  • Internal collection needs
  • Exterior service areas and safety concerns
  • Identify janitorial staff capabilities to support program

Step 3 - REVIEW PROPOSAL
Based on the information and site survey, the EcoRewards Commercial Recycling expert will build a proposal for a tailored recycling solution for the facility. The goals of the proposal will be to:

  • Make the program easy for the facilities staff in order to encourage participation
  • Make recycling more rewarding both environmentally and financially for the business
  • Internal collection needs
  • Review the Recycling Service Agreement, sign it and submit it.

Once the EcoRewards representative receives the agreement, the internal and external recycling equipment included in the proposal will be ordered and scheduled for delivery.

Step 4 - PROMOTE THE PROGRAM
Once a scheduled start date has been confirmed, EcoRewards will provide materials and support to publicize the commencement of the program and to help educate the staff on how to use the program.

Step 5 - MONITOR & REFINE
As the first few pickups are completed, we work with the facility to monitor the services to ensure that the collection schedules match the recycling volume. Once the program has been tested, it's time to analyze the facility waste service to look for cost savings opportunities now that the waste stream has been greatly reduced.
