FAQFrequently Asked Questions
We are confused about recycling. Will it increase or decrease our costs?
At the core of every sustainable development plan is the reduction, recycling, and reuse of materials. Our pro-active service team continuously targets our client’s waste stream analyzing localized laws, market variables, and material quantities to develop location specific recycling solutions. These solutions typically lead to savings and revenue when avoiding landfill disposal costs.
How can we measure RecycleSmart’s effectiveness?
We report on every aspect of your waste & recycling program from carbon footprint data, tonnage and diversion rates, to bill auditing and service consistency. We provide the data needed for intelligent global business decisions and effective vendor evaluation.
Can you manage multiple locations across North America?
Yes we can. From our service centre in Vancouver we coordinate customer service across North America. Unlike other waste management service providers we have “feet on the ground” through our network of over 500 affiliated waste consultants across the United States, Canada and Hawaii. We are able to conduct on site audits, facility walkthroughs and other hands on service. If you have 50 or 5000 locations we can help your business reduce costs and increase your recycling rate.
What makes RecycleSmart different from other management companies?
The difference is in the details. Not all management companies are the same or have the same purchasing power and resource allocation model. Our skilled negotiators are armed with years of continuous service information from large fortune 1000 & 500 companies across the United States and Canada. Unlike many waste management companies our sustainability and environmental expertise includes extensive LEED and ISO 14001 expertise which can help streamline internal and external reporting requirements.
What makes RecycleSmart different from national hauling companies?
National hauling companies are why we are in business. Our process is to capitalize on the free market competition that exists at each of your locations. A hauler’s profit increases with inefficiency. When locations are over serviced or not managed closely, the dollars add up quickly. We have a completely different model. We do not own hauling trucks, service routes, or landfills. Our success is derived from providing best in class service to our clients in the form of professional management. Our value comes from analysis, due diligence and rapid changes based on our data. Our job is to increase efficiency.
What happens to all the savings?
Unlike other companies we don’t need an incentive to provide savings to our clients. We are a professional management service and our service is to reduce and contain our client’s waste & recycling costs. By providing this value everyday, our clients become long term partners. We offer Performance Based Sustainability Management and Integrated Sustainability Management, our clients make the decision on the right solution that fits their unique business needs.
Why can’t our company manage our own waste and recycling programs?

Spend less time, spend less money, increase your recycling rate, increase your profits. We’ll let you make the decision…
