Creating less waste is our passion. Creating recycling programs that work is our purpose. From equipment to education, we can provide a unique, innovative solution that’s able to change with your needs. What’s more, it could even improve your bottom line.
The 3Cs are key to achieving Zero Waste
At CleanRiver, we’ve moved beyond the familiar ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’ to shift towards a more environmentally sustainable approach called the 3C’s of recycling: Culture, Communication, Collection.
Culture is about building a recycling mentality throughout your business from the top down, with senior management leading the way. Establishing a strong culture is actually the number one driver in the success of a program.
Communication isn’t just about putting the right graphics on your recycling containers. It’s more about communicating the culture to make sure it’s well established and embraced throughout the company. When participants see and hear about results, it keeps the positive momentum going.
Collection involves all touch points from picking the right containers to improving efficiencies and developing a consistent flow of material handling. It also involves reducing waste collection requirements to improve your bottom line. And that’s just the beginning.
Partnering with CleanRiver and practicing the 3C’s make it easy for you to do the right thing. We’ll supply much more than our innovative recycling containers made of the highest possible recycled content. We’ll share our expertise gained from 25 years of experience, excite you with our passion about making the planet a more sustainable place, and together, we’ll help ensure that your program is a success.
Our recycling initiatives have been adopted by a diverse range of companies and organizations. Including 300+ college and university campuses across North America and major leaders in the Quick Serve Restaurant industry. We are also proud to service more than 1,700 federal, state, provincial and municipal buildings as well as 100+ military installations around the world. It's all part of our commitment to making Zero waste a reality.
When it comes to recycling, one bin does not fit all. That’s why we take a more holistic approach, looking at the bigger picture and keeping in mind the 3C’s of recycling (culture, communication and collection) to determine the solution that’s right for you.
As recycling technology, government mandates and your business change, we know it’s important to think not only of your immediate needs, but also of your future needs. Recycling products like our Transition Configurable Recycling Containers let you change your recycling program without having to change your recycling containers. And custom graphics, recycling posters, signage and other educational material ensure your program’s success.
We help to determine the product that’s right for your needs and assist in the development of a consistent recycling program throughout your entire facility. We also encourage and help our clients to perform a waste audit to determine cost savings and keep your recycling program optimized. This way, your recycling program can have a positive impact for both the environment, and for your bottom line.
