First of all, does the recycling company you are considering serving your area? This is important because a well-structured recycling program can be difficult to implement if company representatives are not available.
Make sure the best environmental recycling services have a long history. Many startups turn to the recycling business when the market is strong and there are few challenges. These companies may have long since disappeared when the market turned and can’t sell your stuff.
Does the company own and manage its own fleet of service devices? It is difficult to rely on outside subcontractors to provide equipment such as trailers, transportation, and recycling equipment.

Ensure that the company and its employees have the required experience. Request a list of current customers served by the recycler. If possible, visit a few to see if they are satisfied longtime customers.
Look at the recycling facility. Many recyclers are just middlemen and have no processing facilities. This is good; however, this can create problems and increase the cost of rejected loads. It also complicates the handling of “less than trailer load” material. In addition, all bulk processing must be subcontracted at an additional cost.
Watch out for promises that sound like “good to come true”. Many companies make promises, such as offers of free equipment, high prices, prepayments, etc., to find new customers. This type of transaction usually proves not to be in the customer’s best interest. Proper research by recycling companies is in your best interest.
