Dual Stream Recycling
Typically, our Dual Stream program requires customers to pre-sort recyclable commingled items (ie. glass, plastic and aluminum) separately from papers (newspaper, magazines, office paper, etc.). Both commingled items and paper are set out on the curb and collected by two trucks, or a truck that is divided in half, on their pick-up day.
Land is at a premium, energy prices are soaring, and environmental impact has become a concern shared by all. Making more with less. Every pound we recycle out of the waste stream is one less pound we have to mine, smelt or mill. One less pound we have to bury or burn. Cans become more cans. Paper becomes insulation. Steel finds its way back into cars. All of which uses less energy, preserves our natural resources and reduces the waste we generate.
