Recycling Bins in Metro Vancouver
In recent years the focus of business has shifted and recycling is now a requirement of customers, shareholders and employees. Gone are the days, where we don’t ask and don’t tell and recycling and the environment are simply externalities and burdens placed on tax payers or a few green thumbed hippies pushing green initiative propaganda. Business currently recycles and is held accountable for not doing so.
Trash King is a recycling company who practices ethical disposal and innovation. We partner with local recycling facilities such as Urban Woodwaste Recyclers who take exceptional care to ensure the maximum recycling is occurring per ton of garbage dumped. An example of this is that all the garbage bins are dumped and separated where the corrugated cardboard, scrap steel, scrap aluminum, wood waste like pallets and plastics are taken out and recycled.
