Zero Landfill: Economic Incentives

Achieving zero landfill will increase your company’s profitability and also benefit the environment. When landfill dependence is eliminated, disposal costs diminish. Through the diversion and resale of recyclable commodities, your waste stream becomes a revenue stream.

Our first and only priority is to increase your diversion rates and eliminate disposal costs. Green Planet 21 services have achieved zero landfill with four Fortune 500 companies and one Fortune 100 company, resulting in huge cumulative annual savings.

At a single food packaging facility in Arizona, we cut trash costs by $80,000 per year. Revenues increased by an additional $60,000 when previously landfilled materials became salable recycling commodities. Unlike many of our competitors, we have no landfill association.

Our Zero Landfill Process:

  • We conduct a waste audit
  • identify areas in which discards can be reused, diminished, or eliminated
  • implement facility process improvements
  • create custom recycling programs
  • provide all the necessary equipment
  • ROI is generally reached in under a year.

Through our services, clients increase their savings, improve their corporate image, and help minimize their impact on the environment. We differentiate ourselves from our competitors through innovation. From the Kanemiya, our groundbreaking washing machine for plastics, to our closed loop HDPE plastic recycling process. We find new ways to recycle material treated as garbage by other disposal services. Our abilities are unparalleled.

Environmental Incentives for Zero Landfill:

Every month, we recycle over 250 tons of paper and plastic. Imagine what the world would look like if every company went to zero landfill. The recycling efforts of one company can have a huge environmental impact.

Recycling one ton of paper saves:

  • 380 gallons of oil
  • 3 cubic yards of landfill space,
  • 4,000 kilowatts of energy
  • 17 trees, and
  • 7,000 gallons of water

Recycling one ton of plastic recycled 11 barrels of oil from being consumed.
