Waste Recycling

Waste Recycling is the process of collecting materials from the waste streams that would have normally ended up in the landfill and processing these materials to create new products or finding ways to reuse them in alternative and beneficial ways.

Examples of recycled materials include but are not limited to:

  • Wood
  • Plastics
  • Paper
  • Cardboard/OCC
  • Metals
  • Solar Panels
  • Electronics

By recovering and reusing useful materials from the waste streams we reduce the consumption of fresh raw materials and reduce energy usage, air and water pollution.

Consider some of the many benefits of Waste Recycling:

  • Reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills and combustion facilities
  • Conserves scarce natural resources such as timber, water and metals
  • Prevents pollution by reducing the need to process new raw materials
  • Saves energy consumption
  • Reduces greenhouse gas emissions that may contribute to global climate change
  • Improves our efforts to sustain the environment for future generations to enjoy

In the state of South Carolina alone, environmental service companies, like Pinnacle, recycle more than 1 million tons of municipal solid waste every year. This extends the life of existing landfills and positively impacts the state economy in several significant ways: through increased tax revenues, expanding job opportunities and developing new manufacturing processes.Our highly trained analysts can design a custom waste program for your operations, optimizing recycling methods and helping you maintain a safe, clean facility.
