LJP’s Reporting Process
Our expert team at LJP Waste Solutions works with you and every other client step-by-step to ensure we are doing everything possible to help you reach your sustainability goals. To begin our process, our team will come into your facility for a consultation and diagnose your current process. From there, we will construct a new, customized solution. After you buy into our sustainability efforts, we will implement your system. During this process, we will set up a designated schedule for our team to continuously remove your waste. Do not fear—this schedule can be adjusted at any time.
Once your recycling materials are transported to our facility, we process them with our cutting-edge waste processing system, which includes:
- Unloading vehicles
- Processing products
- Sorting products by material type
- Determining compostable, combustible, and recyclable materials
- Transfering the materials that will be recycled to buyers
- Sending remaining compostable and combustible materials to Wilmarth Power Plant
To properly record every piece of material that comes in and out of our facility, we key the numbers into a system of our creation. From there, we are able to accurately bill everyone and provide accurate statistics to our customers and environmental agencies.
Materials We Sort and Transfer
At LJP Waste Solutions, our elite team is able to recycle and convert over 50 materials. Some of these materials include:
- Several Plastic Grades
- Different Metal Types
- Metal Barrels
- Shrink and Stretch Wrap
- Plastic Drums
Each of the products typically comes to our facility baled together with similar materials. We mark each one down as it comes into our facility so it’s documented for reporting purposes.
Compiling the Reports
After the products arrive at our facility, we weigh them by product type, then enter the numbers into our system under your company’s ID so we can generate reports. Once the materials are weighed, we further sort them into recyclable, combustible, and compostable materials. The combustible and compostable materials are then converted to Refuse-Derived Fuel (RDF) after being transported to Wilmarth Power Plant.
To get accurate readings, we document how much of each material is recycled, how much is composted, and how much is converted to RDF. From there, we calculate how each of these materials contributed to your sustainability goals, as well as ours. For example, in 2018, LJP recycled 2,035.38 tons of paper, which saved:
- 34,601 trees
- 8,345,058 kWh of energy
- 170,972 gallons of oil
- 14,247,660 gallons of water
- 6,106 cubic yards of landfill space
In order to continue our growth, we continue to inform our customers about the alternatives to landfills. If more companies join our initiative, we could easily create a world with zero landfill, and eventually reach the point where there is zero waste.
