California Recycles Sets Up Effective Recycling Services for Businesses

california consumer pollution solutions Recycling has grown waaaay beyond putting stacks of office paper in a tub! With today's compliance and market demands for business accountability, recycling is a growing part of a "zero waste" attitude. Waste is being reframed as "resouces" that not only can be reused, but can become profit centers for a company when the market finds demand for recycled goods.

California Recycles began as an electronics recycler-- and has grown to offer a robust variety of recycling and recycled product sourcing services to Los Angeles businesses.

Recycling Services for Business Offices / Production Companies

"We supply recycling bins and biodegradable liners for a company's recycling needs," says Elham Ebiza, president of California Recycles in Los Angeles.

They provide weekly pickup and recycling of the following items:

Paper, Plastic bottles, aluminum cans, glass bottles, ink jet cartridges, cardboard, electronics, cell phones, DVD, CD and VHS tapes.

Clients can also purchase biodegradable food service items as well as recycled office supplies for easy, one-stop recyclable sourcing.

Museums & Restaurants Focus on Electronics and Food Recycling

"We are working with the customer to provide electronic recycling as well as lamp and battery recycling kits," she explains. The California Recyles staff can also set up a date that employees can bring their old electronics to their worksite for recycling twice a year.

"We've been working with restaurants to supply biodegradable food service items in addition to helping our food service customer set up commercial composting programs through the City of Los Angeles and City of Santa Monica restaurant food waste programs," Elham reports. These coordination services make it easier for restaurants and institutional food operations to reduce the number of packaging and food items going to the landfill and separated recycling also increases the number of items being composted.

Composting is a vital natural resources process to restore and maintain the nutrient value of soil that in turn, produces healthy habitat and agricultural crops. Soil depleted of nutrients becomes desertified and is often prone to erosion. Urban recycling and composting programs can return those nutrients to nearby agricultural regions.

Property Managers Provide Popular Tenant Recycling Services

California Recycles also works with building managers to coordinate electronic recycling services for their tenants. This coordinated approach to electronics recycling assures that used electronics are disposed of in a safe and legal way.

Some building managers prefer quarterly pick ups while others prefer a call-as-needed approach.

Business tenants can also take advantage of lamp and battery recycling kits. California Recycles offers disposal of NMH, NICAD and Lithium batteries free of charge.
