Recycling Works in Frederick County

Solid waste disposal is not a fixed cost but a manageable expense...which means, "going green" just might save some green on your business's bottom line. Did you know that it costs $51 less per ton to dispose of recyclable materials than trash at the Frederick County landfill? When you think of all the things a business could recycle, a cost reduction for waste management could be attained by actively managing the business waste stream. And many local businesses are doing just that- recycling more, wasting less and saving money in the process.
