At LJP Waste Solutions, our team takes pride in being the area leader in sustainability and waste-to-energy efforts. When you choose to work with our elite team, we take the time to learn how your company’s waste solutions currently function and how we can help you improve to meet your sustainability goals.

We are not a company that just comes in and offers a quote; we provide you with a solution and show you what sets us apart from the rest of the environmental services companies out there. When we opened for business in 1993, we began perfecting our waste solutions process, which is now state-of-the-art. Our process at LJP includes:

  • Evaluating your current waste processing system
  • Recommending and designing equipment to improve your recycling system
  • Educating and training your employees
  • Visiting your facility on a set schedule to collect your materials
  • Creating and distributing detailed reports

What Does LJP’s Waste Solutions Process Look Like?

If you are interested in contributing to a great cause and appeasing your customers by taking action for the environment, schedule a consultation with LJP Waste Solutions today. When you choose our environmental services professionals for your needs, our team will visit your facility to provide a diagnosis of your system and create a solution designed specifically for your company. Once your initial diagnosis is complete, we will explain the importance of the zero landfill initiative and waste-to-energy solutions. Benefits of zero landfill and waste-to-energy solutions include:

  • Increased natural resource preservation
  • More reusable materials
  • Clean fuel
  • Less solid waste in landfills
  • And more

As soon as we diagnose your current waste solutions system, we will explain the importance of zero landfill and sustainability. At LJP, each of our clients has to partake in our environmental services. We are committed to improving the world, and if you want our services, you have to be equally committed to sustainability. Once you agree to our sustainability measures, we will get to work. After we implement your new system, we will conduct a waste audit, and provide you with detailed reports that follow your progress.

Staff Training

In order to get your new sustainability program up and running, you and your employees need to be fully trained in the operation of the system and the needed equipment. After we have constructed a new system for you and you have acquired the needed equipment, at least one of our team members will come to your facility to train you and your employees and answer any questions you may have about your new system or equipment. The equipment and methods we may train your team on include:

  • Balers
  • Compactors
  • Sorting Materials Properly
  • Learning about the internal flow of materials
  • Reading LJP Provided Reports

Zero Landfill And Sustainability Goals

Though there is a large push for sustainability right now, some companies are all talk. They simply don’t take action for the environment. Because of this, many consumers have started calling on large distribution and manufacturing centers to prove they are working on sustainability. In order to retain their customers, these large companies have begun taking action. However, some of them are still using multiple waste solutions companies for their needs instead of using LJP’s one-stop-shop. We offer all-encompassing environmental services for a reasonable price.

Since opening for business in 1993, we have been working with our customers to create a world with zero landfill. The zero landfill initiative is part of a bigger goal of zero waste. Zero waste is not possible at this point in time, but zero landfill is.
