How Does Our Reporting Process Work?
When you choose to work with LJP Waste Solutions, you get a team that works with you hand-in-hand to ensure you are meeting your goals. After our team initially diagnoses your process and creates a custom solution, we then set a schedule to collect your materials on a regular basis. This schedule can be altered in the future based on your company’s needs.
Following the collection of your recycling materials, we’ll then transport them to our facility , where we’ll adhere to the following process:
- Process the materials
- Sort the material by product type
- Transfer recyclable materials to different buyers
- Send compostable and combustible materials to Wilmarth Power Plant
We keep detailed records every step of the way, which allows us to properly track the materials in our facility and provide accurate billing, as well as accurate statistics for environmental agencies and our customers.
What Materials Do We Sort and Transfer?
At LJP Waste Solutions, we can recycle and covert over 50 materials, including:
- Several grades of plastic
- Plastic drums
- Metal barrels
- Shrink and stretch wrap
As each individual material comes to our facility, typically in a bale with other, similar materials, we mark it down. After we have documented the material brought into our facility, we proceed with the remainder of our reporting.
How is the Report Formed?
After initially processing and sorting your materials, we will weigh them by product type. From there, we key these individual numbers into our system under your company’s name, so we can begin to generate reports. After the materials are weighed, they’re further sorted into combustible, compostable, and recyclable materials. The recyclable materials are weighed once again before being shipped to predetermined buyers. The combustible and compostable materials are then transported to Wilmarth Power Plant to be either composted or converted to Refuse-Derived Fuel (RDF).
We carefully document how much of each material is converted to RDF, how much is composted, and how much is recycled. We then calculate how those materials contributed to your company’s sustainability. For example, in 2017, LJP recycled 2,893.38 tons of paper, which saved:
- 49,197 trees
- 11,862,585 kWh of energy
- 243,044 gallons of oil
- 20,253,660 gallons of water
- 8,680 Cubic yards of landfill space
By informing our customers of the alternative to landfills, we’ve been able to make a significant difference for the environment. If more large companies worked toward sustainability, we could create a world with zero landfill.
