Royal Carting Service Co. and Welsh Sanitation Service are taking a number of steps to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills. Many of these efforts involve education, advocacy, and promoting environmentally responsible business practices. Here are just a few ways we are working to increase positive impacts on the environment and reduce unnecessary waste:
Increasing Recycling Efforts
We are partnering with companies that are investing in new technology and equipment that can sort and process a wider range of materials. This helps to recover more recyclable materials, which in turn reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills.
Composting is a natural way of breaking down organic waste, such as food scraps and yard trimmings, into nutrient-rich soil amendments. Like many industries, we are promoting composting as a way to reduce the amount of organic waste sent to landfills.
Encouraging Source Reduction
Source reduction is the practice of reducing the amount of waste generated in the first place. We are encouraging individuals and businesses to reduce the amount of waste they generate by promoting practices such as buying products with minimal packaging.
Investing in Waste-to-Energy Technology
Waste-to-energy (WtE) technology converts waste into energy, reducing the volume of waste sent to landfills. Royal Carting Service Co. works to process all waste at the Dutchess County Resource Recovery Agency which is a local WtE provider.
Educating the Public
We have significantly invested in our efforts to keep our customers and the public informed through public education campaigns to raise awareness about the importance of reducing waste and recycling. These campaigns have included information on how to recycle properly, composting, and the benefits of reducing waste.
By taking these steps, we are helping to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfills, promoting sustainable waste management practices, and protecting the environment. We can all play a role in reducing waste and preserving our planet for future generations.
