Commercial Recycling: Good for Business, Good for our Future
- Commercial Recycling generates new job growth: in recycling collection, support, supervisory and management roles.
- The cost-effectiveness of community recycling is primarily influenced by the amount of waste targeted for retrieval – by adding commercial recycling to our already existing residential recycling participants, we will increase the cost-effectiveness of both.
- Cost-effectiveness is also influenced by density – in areas such as Campus Corner and Downtown, the higher density of businesses with recyclables will make the system more financially viable.
- Trash disposal needs will decrease with a commercial recycling program, which will in turn could reduce already existing costs for business owners.
