ARE YOU LOOKING TO SAVE MONEY?
It is a FACT, businesses who utilize Scrap Specialists SAVE MONEY. According to Rhode Island law, businesses who employ more than twenty-five employees are mandated to recycle and all other businesses are strongly encouraged to recycle. The typical business pays a monthly fee to have a solid waste dumpster on their premises. This fee is based upon the number of times the dumpster needs to be emptied each month. Some businesses, looking to be more environmentally friendly, pay an additional monthly fee to retain recycling services from their solid waste hauler. Scrap Specialists is RI's first toll processor and the only company in the state to handle and process strictly commercial recyclables entirely FREE OF CHARGE. How does this save you money? The typical business we analyze has a solid waste stream containing up to 90% recyclable materials. By choosing Scrap Specialists completely FREE recycling services your business can divert this waste from your solid waste dumpster to your recycling dumpster. This means a reduced fee from your solid waste hauler due to decreased tipping frequency; which keeps money in your pocket.
CLEAN UP THE ENVIRONMENT?
If your business does not currently recycle, every solid waste item generated heads directly to the landfill where it will likely sit for thousands of years. Whether or not you believe in global warming, recycling is beneficial to the environment. The one act of recycling impacts the environment in several ways: reducing the drain of raw materials, reducing GHG pollution, and saving energy. When recycling rates are high, the demand for raw goods (which many times are non-renewable) decreases which reduces the consumption strain on our planet. Recycling reduces GHG emissions. Instead of having items break down in a landfill where the release methane and other harmful gases, the items are re-manufactured into brand new products. The amount of energy required to recycle waste into new products pales in comparison to the amount of energy needed to extract the raw goods from the environment, refine them, and manufacture the product. Keeping this in mind, what is the worst that can happen if we recycle? The world becomes a better place.
AND INCREASE YOUR CUSTOMER BASE?
In today's society, consumers are driven by a number of complex factors. Consumers are increasingly looking to shop with businesses who are making an effort to increase their sustainability. Many businesses are ecotistical; they have inflated truthfulness about their own environmental accomplishments. Your business can be a community leader. By taking the initiative to implement recycling, you can distinguish yourself as a progressive business. Differentiating your product or the manner used to produce your product can appeal to broad customer base.
