Help Starting or Improving a Program

Resource Recovery provides technical assistance and waste assessments to RI groups (government entities, schools, businesses, institutions, and housing communities) at no cost. While recycling in commercial spaces is more commonplace, many entities large or small, need a little help getting started with or improving a program. Whether it's waste materials from the manufacturing process, piles of single-use coffee cups, stacks of printouts in the copy room, or non-recyclable items contaminating your recycling bins, a few small tweaks can help you operate in a more sustainable way. Don't think waste reduction is just for your traditional 9-to-5 office buildings either: hotels, restaurants, manufacturing facilities, multi-family complexes, schools and even hospitals all generate waste—much of which can be diverted from the landfill. So, how do you get your building(s)on the path to sustainability? Schedule a free waste assessment with Rhode Island Resource Recovery.

What’s a waste assessment? Great question. Our staff visits your site to determine the types of materials that are currently thrown away, strategizes options, and helps you develop an action plan. Once you begin to reduce the amount of waste generated in your building, you will reduce the amount of waste being disposed at the landfill, and potentially save money too!

Some groups we’ve worked with:

  • Lifespan Group: RI, Miriam, and Newport Hospitals
  • FM Global
  • Department of Corrections
  • University of Rhode Island
