Instead of your waste going to the landfill (boo!), we help your organization figure out better things to do with it (like compost and recycle) and provide the hauling services to get your waste to where it needs to go.
Types of Organizations We Work With
For your place of work, school, or faith — we can help you start a recycling and compost program, improve the one you already have, or help you go zero waste.
We provide a door-to-door trash, recycling, compost pickup program. This enables a zero waste tenant lifestyle while putting an end to illegal dumping.
If you live in single-family housing, we can help you set up a compost drop-off site for your neighborhood.
It all starts by inspiring the youth! From composting in the lunch room to going zero waste, we collaborate with schools to introduce sustainability practices.
Streams of Waste We Pick Up
We got ourselves a 5-star program, too. Only ours saves the planet.
At the very least, we'll pick up the trash in a dumpster, roll-off, or compactor and deliver to the landfill (but we're secretly hoping our relationship will lead to what's below).
Dual-Stream Recycling Pickup
We're gonna let you in on a little secret: large amounts of recycled materials actually end up in the landfill. Yuck! Here's a few reasons why: most people recycle the wrong way, many haulers don't correct this, and some recycling sorting centers let haulers drop off materials even when they don't have a way to recycle it. To cut through all this non-sense, we vet our recycling partners to ensure your materials have the best chance of being recycled, we help you recycle the right way, and we help you transition into dual-stream recycling.
Hefty EnergyBag Pickup
Imagine a world where manufacturers aren't allowed to use non-recyclable plastics. Yay! But the reality is they do, which makes it impossible to stay away from these non-recyclable "soft" plastics (like chip bags) & styrofoam (like take-out containers). We help our partners move away from these junkie plastics into recyclable and compostable materials, but where this isn't possible, we offer the Hefty EnergyBag alternative that (according to First Star) turns these materials into diesel fuel. There's more to it, but we'll keep it short and cute for now.
Glass Recycling Pickup
The business community asked for it, so we figured out a way to do it! Instead of sending all of that dense and heavy material to the landfill, we'll pick it up and process it.
Composting is nature's version of recycling, and it's a freakin' miracle! Here's why you should do it: over half of what's in our landfill is compostable, and since these materials aren't getting enough oxygen in a landfill environment, they put off methane gas, which is 80 times worse than CO2. The good news is that we operate the Omaha area's only commercial composting farm (take a peek) & will pick up your materials. Compostable items we take include all food waste (yes, even dairy & meat), wet paper/cardboard (somebody say pizza boxes?), yard waste (finally!), manure (ask us about the stuff we get from the zoo), and all of this fancy compostable serviceware hitting the market. From there, we create nutrient-dense soil that winds up in gardens and farms across our community. Amen!
