Business and Corporate Training:

If you are like most businesses in Northern Colorado, you need support in understanding the requirements for recycling. We provide custom programming for organizations of all types and sizes. Our most popular program is our “lunch-n-learn” where we provide a waste audit, a custom waste report, and a business presentation.

Waste management programs such as recycling and waste reduction are easy to engage employees to promote sustainability initiatives. This is because recycling reduces the need for natural resources to be extracted from the environment, keeps materials out of the landfill, and supports a local, circular economy that promotes American jobs.
