Our Services: From Garbage Collection to Composting and More
Ok, first things first, let's talk garbage.
Every business produces garbage, but not all garbage is created equal (However smelly!) It's important to know what types of materials can be disposed of in your garbage bin, and what things need to be separated for recycling or composting. Generally speaking, anything organic or can be recycled should not go in the garbage (I know, I know - it's a pain in the butt).
This includes things like food waste, cardboard, paper, plastics, and metal. These materials can be recycled or composted, which can reduce waste and help keep our local areas clean. On the other hand, materials that cannot be recycled or composted, like certain types of plastics, should be disposed of in the regular garbage bin.
At BluPlanet, we offer garbage collection services for local business of all shapes and sizes. We can provide you with a range of bins to suit your needs, from mini 2-yard bins for smaller businesses to large 40-yard bins for bigger operations or projects.
We'll also work with you to determine the best pickup schedule based on the amount of waste you generate, so you don't have to worry about overflowing bins or missed pickups...
Now, let's talk organics....
Did you know that organic waste makes up a huge portion of the waste generated by businesses? This includes things like food waste, yard waste, and other organic material. When these things are thrown away in landfills, they break down and give off bad stuff, methane gas , which is one of the main causes of global warming.
Composting, on the other hand, allows these materials to break down naturally and be turned into nutrient-rich soil, which can be used to grow new plants and trees. Isn't this great!
At BluPlanet, we offer organic waste pickup services for businesses that want to do their part for the environment. We'll provide you with a compost bin, which you can fill with food waste, yard waste, and other organic materials. We'll then pick up the bin on a regular schedule and transport it to a local composting facility.
The end result? Less waste in landfills and more nutrient-rich soil for local farms and gardens.
Speaking of composting, let's jump in to it's lovely benefits.
Composting is not only good for the environment, it's also good for your business. By composting your organic waste, you can reduce your overall waste stream, which can save you money on garbage pickup fees = Win win!
You'll also be doing your part to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which can help to combat climate change. And if you're a restaurant or other food-based business, composting can be a great way to reduce your environmental footprint and promote your commitment to sustainability to your customers.... (Hint: customers love businesses that are doing their part)..
Now, let's move on to recycling.
We all know that recycling is important, but did you know that not all materials can be recycled? It's important to know what materials can be recycled in your area, as well as how to properly sort and prepare them for recycling. In Calgary, most recyclable materials can be placed in your blue bin, including plastics, paper, cardboard and aluminum cans.
But, it's important to note that not all plastics are the same. For example, you can't recycle plastic bags in your blue bin. Instead, return them to a grocery store to dispose of them properly (I know it's a pain, but it all adds up over time).
Also, materials that are dirty or have food waste on them can't be recycled and should be thrown away or put in a compost pile.
At BluPlanet, we offer recycling pickup services for businesses of all sizes that come with ongoing support. We'll work with you to determine the best pickup schedule based on the amount of recyclable materials you generate, and we'll make sure that all materials are properly sorted and prepared for recycling....
We also offer recycling education and training services for businesses that want to ensure that their employees are properly informed about how to recycle!!
