SSR Guide – Evaluate Your Program

SSR Guide – Evaluate Your Program

Monitor your program regularly for best results.  Watch and record fluctuations in waste collection over time.  As you track your progress, you may notice that the trash dumpsters aren’t as full as they used to be.  You may see that you need extra recycling pickups than you originally estimated.

When you evaluate the level of recyclables compared to the level of trash, you will know if you can decrease the number of trash pickups in a week.  This is how you can save money by recycling.

Coordinate with your accounting department to analyze waste costs.  After the program has been in place for a while, compare the cost of having strictly trash picked up versus the cost of combined trash and recycling pickup.  You will find many different ways to utilize the cost savings.
