At Advanced Disposal, our recycling facilities are much more than simple sorting operations. They’re actually thriving business units and necessary community infrastructures. They fulfill a vital need to preserve our natural resources while performing their operations efficiently and economically.
Most of our facilities accept the following materials:
• Paper (all grades including newspaper, magazines, office paper, etc.)
• Fiber (cardboard, fiberboard)
• Plastics (#1 - #7)
However, some recycling facilities have unique capabilities, such as:
• Beverage destruction
• Document destruction
• Processing high-grade office paper
• Specialty plastics
Visit your local Advanced Disposal facility page to confirm which items can be recycled in your area.
In addition to recycling, Advanced Disposal supports a wide variety of methods that preserve our natural resources, including composting.
The process of composting simply requires making a heap of wetted organic matter (leaves, "green" food waste) and waiting for the materials to break down into humus after a period of weeks or months. Modern methodical composting is a multi-step, closely monitored process with measured inputs of water, air, and carbon- and nitrogen-rich materials. Compost can be rich in nutrients, so it is commonly used in gardens, landscaping, horticulture and agriculture. The compost itself is beneficial for the land in many ways — as a soil conditioner, fertilizer, and natural pesticide for soil. (Source: Wikipedia, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compost)
