Efficiency in Business Recycling
When staff can easily recycle within their company, it can be particularly helpful for businesses that manage organic waste, as food scraps and floral waste tend to by heavy and wet, which makes them heavy and difficult to move from collection to pick-up. With the right system in place, you can make it easier to move unruly waste to its pick-up location.
