Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How much do recycle centers pay per pound?

Ans. Green Planet 21 bases its prices for each material on industry pricing. We pride ourselves on offering the best price-per-pound when we purchase your paper, cardboard, metals, and other material. 

Q. What industries require Industrial Waste Management?

Ans. Companies in any industry can benefit from leveraging industrial recycling services. Industries that Green Planet 21 works frequently with include third-party logistics, food and agriculture, engineering, manufacturing, state and local government, warehousing and distribution centers, as well as many others. 

Q. What types of sites require industrial waste recycling services?

Ans. Any site that is producing a large amount of paper waste (or other types of waste) can benefit from installing recycling equipment on-site and coordinating on-site pick-up of their recycling. Green Planet 21 will work with you to figure out how to optimize your ROI when choosing recycling equipment. 

Q. What are the environmental benefits of industrial waste recycling?

Ans. When companies recycle their paper, plastics, and metals instead of sending them to landfill, they can help create a large ongoing stream of recyclables to produce new material. Recycling can save huge amounts of energy and water associated with virgin paper production, reduces greenhouse gas emissions, saves considerable landfill space, and preserves natural resources and ecosystems.
