Client Spotlight | Ever Green Environmental
Ever Green Environment has the opportunity to be a strategic partner for almost every business within their sphere of influence, which is growing with their recent acquisition of Recycle Grand Strand on the coast of South Carolina.
Ever Green Environmental’s approach with helping businesses of all sizes reduce their footprint by create internal programs or helping out with on demand needs is worth sharing. So we visited Rob Eney who is leading the charge and asked a few questions.
One of the biggest hassles with recycling is knowing where to put the various items. Can I put cans and bottles together? Do I have to separate paper from cardboard? Can I mix everything together, or does it just become trash at that point? Ever Green solves those problems with single stream recycling. Our service allows customers of all sizes to start or expand their recycling program by capturing paper, plastics, aluminum, and cardboard all in the same container. No more worrying about what item needs to go where. If it’s paper, plastics, aluminum, or cardboard, throw it in Ever Green’s container, and we’ll make sure it is properly sorted, recycled, and reused!
Of course! We help our customers properly recycle electronics, like computers, printers, and monitors, but also florescent lightbulbs, ballasts, and batteries. We can take multiple items in one load, so you don’t need to wait until you have multiple pallets of a single item. Once we pick up the items, we weigh or count them, sort them, and then send them to our partners who disassemble them, and recycle the individual commodities in each item. Finally, we send you a Certificate of Recycling that shows you’ve disposed of your electronics properly.
All sizes! We help businesses start or expand their recycling program. Some businesses want to become “Ever Green” but don’t know where to start. Other businesses have very limited recycling programs, and don’t know how to expand them. Ever Green helps with both. We’ll come in, survey your waste streams, and come up with a comprehensive plan to help you recycle more than you’re recycling today. From single person offices to manufacturing facilities, we can help you become “Ever Green”!
Are there Federal or State Requirements?
Yes, South Carolina passed an electronics recycling bill on July 1, 2011 that banned the disposal of electronics in landfills. Ever Green provides proper disposal of electronics, and issues our customers Certificates of Recycling to confirm that the items have been recycled properly.
What are the First Steps to Start Recycling?
Give Ever Green a call! We’ll discuss briefly what you’re doing now, and how you’d like to improve that. Once we discuss that, we’ll do a site survey and come up with a plan to help your business start or expand your current recycling efforts. Our goal is to help every business become “Ever Green”
