Business Recycling Services

BARC Recycling Services provides a convenient system in which different recyclable materials are placed in one recycling container, saving your company time, space and effort.

Your company is provided with a standard blue cart, ranging in size from 32 to 96 gallons to collect your recyclable materials in.  Once weekly, a BARC crew consisting of one staff member and 3-4 Clients will come to your business and empty the carts. The carts will be wiped down and the plastic liner will be replaced.

Premium carts, for businesses that would like their bins placed in more visible areas, are available for an additional charge.

In addition, BARC will provide educational materials to aid your company in informing your staff about your participation in the program and the importance of recycling.

Why it Makes a Difference

Every ton of paper recycled saves 60% of the energy, 17 trees, 7,000 gallons of water and 60 pounds of air pollution.

Paper comprises 75% of office waste.

Recycling an aluminum can uses only 5% of the energy required to make a new one. Recycling glass uses only 50% of the energy.

Less than 9% of the 8 million tons of printing and writing paper used in the US every year is recycled content. The rest comes from chopping down 188 million trees.

Recycling accounts for more than 2.35 million tons of glass bottles, 54 billion aluminum cans, and billions more plastic and paper items that is kept out of the landfills every year.
