Your organization can reduce waste, capture more recycling and organics and save on disposal costs through recycling, but first you need to know what you are throwing away.
A waste sort is an activity that examines your organization’s waste stream — typically the trash, recycling and organics — to find what is working and what needs improvement.
When you are ready, the documents below will help you plan and execute your own waste sort.
