Waste and Recycling Training

Our Waste and Recycling Training Programs deepen participation in waste diversion at your site, assisting in realizing long-term recycling cost efficiencies.

Our professional trainers will meet with a manager from each tenant group one-on-one to:

  • Provide them with a detailed description of their role in the waste and recycling program.
  • Review site-specific diversion metrics and the list of acceptable materials in each waste stream.
  • Leave them with resources to post in their space to encourage continued participation from all employees.
  • Answer any questions pertaining to the recycling program.

We also provide separate, boardroom-style training sessions for maintenance, custodial and security staff. Our training is educational, yet focused on being engaging and interactive.
