How does nationwide bulk waste pickup work to increase efficiency at my facility?

Our bulk pickup services provide a cost-effective solution for facilities that recycle a large amount of universal waste. Our program takes care of waste including fluorescent lamps (crushed or not), ballasts, batteries, and electronic waste. And our flexible scheduling allows us to coordinate a pickup date that works best for you.

Your packaged waste is picked up and delivered to one of our certified recycling partners. The waste is then recycled, and you’ll receive a Certificate of Recycling to confirm proper handling and processing. Our online recycling reports allow anyone who has utilized bulk pickup recycling services to receive detailed information about their facility’s recycling progress. Each report details specifically what types of waste were recycled, the amount recycled, and the date processed. These reports are available online 24/7 and are perfect for facility management reviews, “green” marketing initiatives, and more.
