Statistics show that businesses typically generate approximately 70% of our overall waste stream statewide, while residents generate the remaining 30%. During this time of decreasing landfill capacity, and diminishing natural resources, it has become ever important for businesses to reduce the amount of waste they create. Waste reduction can be achieved through smart purchasing, recycling, and reuse. Reducing unnecessary waste through such practices can help any business operate more efficiently and more profitably.
