Waste Reduction

Reducing waste is not only good for the environment, it is good for business. RPM will work with your company to identify the best way to reduce the amount of material that you send to the landfill. Along with your staff, we develop and implement a plan that will divert all recyclable materials into a managed recycling program. We then help you “right size” your current waste disposal program to ensure that the service levels and equipment are appropriate for the waste material generated. When fully implemented, your company will maximize landfill avoidance and minimize your waste disposal costs.


  • Guaranteed cost reduction
  • No need to add staff. We will implement and manage 100% of the program.
  • Help meet your sustainability objectives
