There are many businesses around the country that have been engaged in sustainability practices for many years, and even they are incorporating the greenness of their efforts as they make over their images.

It is the exact same company, doing the exact same thing; however, as it is reinventing its image, it is showcasing its recycling efforts. The company processes more than 100,000 tons of garbage annually, and it has been actively recycling for decades. The company constantly creates new methods for both residential and business customers to participate in recycling programs. With events like residential spring cleanup day, recycling buyback centers and commercial cardboard recycling, Recoloby has very effectively contributed to environmental cleanup efforts.
