Industrial Waste Recycling

Recycling your industrial waste -- be it hazardous or non-hazardous -- offers many benefits to organization. Recycling reduces the costs you would otherwise incur disposing of unused materials and byproducts. Recycling can provide you with a steady, dependable stream. Recycling can help your company reach its environmental goals and improve company's standing with local governments and the community at large.

A long-time leader in industrial materials recycling, WM can optimize your organization's recycling program a number of ways:

  • Identifying your facility's waste streams. Our first step is to identify and catalog the types and volumes of industrial materials and byproducts your facilities produce. Once we know exactly the types of materials in question, we can devise an appropriate recycling program for managing them.
  • Determining how your waste is regulated. The definitions and corresponding regulations of industrial materials can vary from state to state. We will determine what wastes must be classified as hazardous, and which can be categories as non-hazardous. In some cases, we can have waste recategorized from hazardous to non-hazardous, which makes recycling much easier.
  • Finding markets for your recyclable materials. As a WM customer, you'll be able to tap markets worldwide. We regularly remarket industrial materials to buyers in Europe, Asia, South America and Australia. Our vast buyer network ensures you get the best possible price for the byproducts you produce.
