Cost Savings

Cart-based service results in lower worker’s compensation claims and insurance premiums and better route efficiencies, which translates to less fuel, maintenance and overhead. Plus, with more recovery comes less disposal and decreased disposal costs.

Better Service

Residents can more easily fit all of their recyclables into one container, then simply roll those items to the curb.

Worker Safety
