Your residential recycling efforts do make a difference. Recycling conserves natural resources, reduces energy consumption, contributes to the economy through the creation of green collar jobs, saves money through waste diversion, produces fewer air emissions and prolongs the life of landfills.
At Pratt Recycling, we understand that recycling makes a difference, not only to our environment, but to the communities where we live and work. We recognize that each community’s needs and goals are unique, so we offer residential recycling solutions designed to support the waste-stream management initiatives of your community.
Pratt offers a variety of residential recycling solutions:
Paper and Corrugated Residential Recycling Cardboard Program
Offers a simple solution for recycling all paper products produced by your residents. Since nearly 70% of the recyclable materials produced within the community are paper and corrugated cardboard products, recycling these can create a significant impact.
Dual-Stream Residential Recycling Program
Offers a solution that increases recovery of your recyclables by adding a separate container with a combined recycling stream of plastic containers, aluminum and steel cans to be collected alongside your container filled with clean paper products.
Single-Stream Recycling Program
Offers a comprehensive recycling solution for communities wanting to maximize their recycling participation. Single-stream recycling allows for the ease and convenience of combining all recyclables such as paper, cardboard, plastic containers, aluminum and steel cans into one “single” collection stream with no sorting needed.
Drop-site Residential Recycling Program
Offers a perfect solution to communities wanting to offer recycling for residents who wish to gather their own recyclables or those who live outside current service areas. The number of drop-off sites and the types of commodities recovered are flexible, depending on the municipality’s choices and local commodity markets.
No matter which recycling solution suits your community’s needs, Pratt Recycling is committed to partnering with you to enrich educational outreach, deepen community involvement and promote continued growth in residential recycling participation. Our approach engages the entire community: citizens, local businesses, schools and civic organizations, creating strong green habits, and fostering environmental stewardship.
