Every month, we come across headlines that remind us of all the opportunities that are available when it comes to business waste recycling. For example, recently the San Jose Mercury News reported that “Santa Monica Recycles Cooking Grease Into Biofuel.” This provides a perfect example for exactly how much you can truly do when it comes to better waste recycling.
Over the years, we’ve had the chance to help quite a few businesses recycle better. Through all of our efforts, we’ve come across a quickly growing list of ways to recycle that are significantly cheaper than the alternative. Ultimately, we’ve learned that no matter what industry a business is in there’s something they can do with their waste that’s better than simply hauling it away. Whether they can convert grease into biofuel like the restaurants in Santa Monica, or contribute used paper products to create more recycled paper—the fact always remains that the opportunities remain, and Environmental Waste Solutions
affiliates benefit every day from the many opportunities that surround us.
When thought about just a little bit differently, an opportunity is a funny thing. 5 years ago, many EWS affiliates had no clue that they could make a good living and make a difference by helping businesses recycle better. In the same way, many of the businesses that we work with never knew that there were far better (and much more profitable) things they could be doing with their waste. Now, the EWS affiliates who didn’t have a clue are successful and working on their own. As for their client businesses, they’re greener and better than they were before. So take it from us, even though the opportunities that surround us may not be obvious, never underestimate the impact they can make. Who knows, your next opportunity could be your greatest.
