Recycling in the office reduces raw material costs, boosts profitability, and lessens the company's environmental footprint. Furthermore, an eco-friendly approach promotes a positive workplace culture, attracting and retaining elite talent. With American On-Site, businesses can effortlessly meet their sustainability goals.
For events, American On-Site supplies robust, recyclable cardboard bins, accompanied by clear recycling guidelines. Educating staff and attendees about proper recycling practices minimizes contamination and obviates the need for subsequent sorting. Our comprehensive event recycling guide encompasses aspects like management commitment, reuse strategies, waste-free event promotion, green team roles, vendor agreements, collection services, signage, equipment, and more, ensuring a holistic approach to event recycling.
To implement a successful recycling strategy, facilities should first appoint a recycling coordinator. American On-Site can then assist in assessing the facility's 'waste stream' and provide essential educational resources. We also offer a dedicated recycling hauling solution. Key recyclable materials to consider include aluminum, plastics, glass, corrugated cardboard, and various paper types.
The costs of establishing a recycling program can fluctuate based on factors like location, employee count, and foot traffic. However, American On-Site offsets these costs by offering value-added services like consultancy and educational resources, aiding businesses in realizing their sustainability aspirations.
Promoting recycling awareness is crucial for the success of any recycling program. With American On-Site, this becomes an engaging endeavor. Our Feed Mr. Murph program infuses fun into the learning process, ensuring that employees are not only informed but also enthusiastic about recycling.
Measuring the success of your business recycling program involves a combination of quantitative assessments and qualitative observations. Here's how you can gauge its effectiveness:
Volume and Weight Metrics: Track the amount of recyclable materials collected over time. A consistent increase in the volume or weight of recyclables indicates growing participation and effectiveness.
Waste Audit: Conduct regular waste audits to determine the percentage of recyclable materials in your waste stream. A decrease in recyclables in the trash signifies improved recycling habits.
Cost Savings: Monitor any reductions in waste disposal costs. As more materials are diverted from the trash to recycling, you may notice a decrease in waste disposal fees.
Employee Engagement: Survey employees to gauge their awareness, participation, and feedback on the recycling program. High engagement levels often correlate with a successful program.
Environmental Impact: Calculate the environmental benefits using metrics like the reduction in carbon emissions, water saved, and trees preserved due to your recycling efforts.
Achievement of Set Goals: Compare your results with the sustainability goals or benchmarks you set at the beginning. Meeting or exceeding these goals is a clear indicator of success.
Feedback from Partners: Engage with your recycling service provider, like American On-Site, for feedback and data on contamination rates, collection frequency, and other insights that can help assess the program's success.
Remember, the key to a successful recycling program is continuous improvement. Regularly review and adjust your strategies based on the data and feedback you gather.
All containers will be placed on a hard or paved surface to prevent property damage. If a customer requests placement on an unpaved surface, this could result in increased costs if inclement weather prevents removal on the date requested. Costs could include:
(1) a trip fee based on location and no less than $75, and (2) additional lease fees at the current rental rate until ground conditions allow for removal. If the container is placed on an unpaved surface at the customer’s request, the customer assumes all responsibility for any increased costs and any damage to the ground or grass this may cause.
Due to safety concerns, please do not attempt to move a container once placed at your site. If you need a container moved before the final pickup, please call our customer service.
American On-Site is not responsible for accidents, injury, or damage caused by a container or to a container while the container is at the customer’s location.
If a container is overloaded, American On-Site will either charge additional fees to haul the container or require the customer to offload material before removal if the container cannot be safely hauled.
Most material is acceptable for disposal in our temporary containers. Please see the following list for exceptions. If unsure of size or material, please contact our customer service prior to placing items in containers.
Example of Allowed Materials:
Example of Materials With Restrictions:
Materials such as rock, dirt, sand, concrete, tile, and brick are typically not permitted in most of our dumpster sizes due to their substantial weight. These materials can quickly exceed the weight limits for our trucks, as well as local and highway regulations, posing safety risks.
However, we do allow these materials in our 16-yard and 20-yard dumpsters under specific conditions. A 16-yard dumpster can be filled up to 3/4 with these heavy materials, while a 20-yard dumpster can be filled up to 1/2.
Please note that these materials are not allowed at all in our smaller 16-yard, 30-yard, or 40-yard dumpsters unless you have obtained written approval from us. This is to ensure we adhere to all safety standards and regulations.
When it comes to disposing of shingles, we do have specific restrictions based on the size of the dumpster due to weight considerations. Here are the guidelines:
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in this matter. If you have any questions or need further clarification, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
When renting a dumpster from American On-Site, it’s important to be aware of the weight limits for each dumpster size. Overloading a dumpster can result in additional fees due to the extra costs associated with hauling and disposing of the excess weight at the local landfill. Here are the weight limits for our dumpsters:
Front Load Dumpsters:
Please note that these weight limits are in place to ensure the safety and efficiency of our waste disposal process. If a container is overloaded, additional fees will apply to haul the dumpster and for the extra weight charges at the local landfill.
In the event that a container is excessively filled, American On-Site will take one of two actions. We may levy additional charges (based on local landfill rates) and for the transportation of the overloaded container. Alternatively, we may necessitate that the customer remove some of the contents to ensure the container can be safely transported.
When disposing of electronics, it’s important to remember that they often contain components that can be harmful to the environment if not disposed of properly. Therefore, they should be recycled separately. Items like televisions, computers, and other electronics are typically allowed in dumpsters, but they often need to be recycled separately due to the specific materials they contain. Here’s how you can prepare your electronics for proper disposal:
Remember, improper disposal of electronics can lead to harmful materials like lead, mercury, and cadmium leaching into the environment. By recycling your electronics separately, you’re helping to protect the environment and conserve natural resources.
Before disposing of refrigerators and air conditioners, it’s important to follow these steps to ensure safe and environmentally friendly disposal:
