Corporate Recycling Programs

For some companies, the packaging is the largest part of their environmental footprint.

“There’s a difference between things being recyclable and actually being recycled,” says Gerry Fishbeck, Vice President of United Resource Recovery Corporation (URRC), one of the largest recyclers in the country.”

The U.S. recycling system has many challenges but corporate recycling programs are evolving. The Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) is a legislation that sets requirements for companies to collect and recycle a certain percentage of the packaging waste they generate, but leave how they go about doing it up to the companies themselves.

Companies are taking recycling into their own hands and establishing “go green” efforts that not only reduce their carbon footprint but also save them money. One of the most important steps to this process is arranging the collection and disposal of your waste.
