Recycling is not only good for the environment; it can also reduce your overall trash costs. Here are some success stories we’ve already seen:

The Comet in Northside began recycling in 2009. In only 3 months the Comet recycled more than 26,000 beer and liquor bottles. The Comet has enjoyed a savings of $30/mo since the recycling program began. “Aside from space limitations, there is no good reason why this can’t be implemented throughout the city,” notes owner Dave Cunningham. He views it as win-win-win for bar owners, patrons and the environment.

Mac's Pizza Pub began recycling in 2010. After implementing recycling they were able to reduce their trash pickup from 5 times per week to 2 times per week. “This reduction constituted a significant savings. We still have 2 cardboard and one co-mingled pick-ups per week, so the frequency of pickups is the same, but the recycled items are less expensive to have hauled away than the trash,” says owner Mac Ryan.
