Recycling - Led Waste Management

The traditional approach to waste management is antiquated.  We provide waste management services with a total commitment to landfill avoidance and transparency. 

No landfills:

We don't own landfills, so there is no incentive for us to fill them. Instead, Greenstar is solely committed to recycling and creating customized programs for our customers that suit their specific objectives and needs. 

Full transparency:

Greenstar provides detailed, online reporting for services rendered with full visibility to prices paid for materials.  Customers know that they receive the best possible prices for their materials and can clearly calculate the cost savings.  Our reporting process also includes carbon calculations - emissions reductions achieved through the recycling programs. 

Long term:

Greenstar offers customers a consistent, flexible and long-term approach - a direct result of our strong, stable backing (privately held - no private equity).

Protect and Preserve Resources

Pursuing a noble cause
Going green can be defined as achieving environmental sustainability— a topic that is receiving ever-increasing attention from business quarters.

Environmental sustainability ensures that the use of resources and the impact of the environment today does not harm the availability of resources or the health of the environment for future generations. For businesses, this means adopting strategies and tactics that meet the current needs and obligations of the enterprise while protecting and preserving precious natural resources.

This is a paradigm shift in the way corporations must view and treat waste. At Greenstar, we strongly believe in this philosophy and are driving up standards within the U.S. recycling infrastructure.

Avoiding global resource depletion requires a commitment to recycling as a viable economic alternative to dumping waste in landfills. Greenstar stands ready to help your business fulfill that commitment by providing sustainable, recycling-led waste management solutions.

Meeting legal obligations
The waste disposal need of businesses are also changing radically due to a growing number of national and international environmental directives.

For many businesses, proper waste management is not only environmentally sound, it is also lawfully mandated. At Greenstar, we are well versed in waste management legalities and have the resources and expertise to help your business achieve compliance.

Enhancing your company's reputation
Businesses that reduce their carbon footprint—by reducing pollution, using renewable energy or decreasing landfill waste—realize a residual benefit: an improved image. In fact, environmental initiatives, when effectively promoted, can attract new customers and strengthen customer loyalty.

Benefiting your bottom line
Many North American businesses are recycling more not only for environmental, regulatory and public relations reasons, but also because it is increasingly cost-effective to do so. Greenstar is helping more and more businesses go green and save money in the process. We can help your business do the same.
