What Does Our Waste Solutions Process Look Like?

If you are interested in meeting your sustainability goals or improving your current process, schedule a consultation with LJP Waste Solutions today. When you choose our team for your needs, we will come to your facility to diagnose your system and provide a solution specifically designed for you. From there, we will explain the importance of zero landfill and waste-to-energy solutions. Some of the benefits of these two environmental services include:

  • Less solid waste in landfills
  • More natural resources
  • Clean fuel
  • More exotic materials
  • And more

After we diagnose your current waste solutions system, we will explain why we focus on zero landfill and sustainability efforts. Once you agree to merge your facility with zero landfill and sustainability methods, we will get to work implementing your new system, before conducting an audit, and providing you with detailed reports that show your progress. However, in order to work with us, you need to be committed to sustainability. We believe in creating a better world, and everyone we work with has to partake in these sustainability actions, as well.

Employee Training

One of the final steps of our waste solutions process is training your employees. In order to work with our team and work toward reaching your sustainability goals, each of your employees needs to be fully trained in our process so it goes smoothly each time. After we implement your new system, at least one of our employees will come to your facility to train you and your employees with the new equipment and methods. Some of the equipment and methods we may be training you on include:

  • Balers
  • Compactors
  • Proper Material Sorting
  • Learning how the internal flow of materials will work
  • Tying Off Bales
  • Reading LJP Provided Reports

Zero Landfill And Sustainability Goals

You may hear about companies working to take sustainability seriously, but how often do you really see it? Many consumers are now calling on large manufacturing and distribution companies to work toward a more sustainable world, and these companies are taking action in order to retain their customers. However, many pay extra to have multiple companies handle their waste, instead of utilizing the one-stop-shop right in front of them. At LJP, we can handle your waste services from sorting, to conversion, to reporting. We offer each of these services at a reasonable price.

Since we opened our doors, we have been striving to create a world with zero landfill. The zero landfill initiative is part of a bigger push for zero waste. Although zero waste is not possible right now, zero landfill is, and it is an important cause to work for.
