PARTNERSHIPS HELP DRIVE DIVERSION
We’re always looking for like-minded municipalities to partner with. We serve cities and counties under franchise agreements and in open market areas, such as Portland. Every partnership is unique, as we tailor services depending on demographics and landscapes, working together to maximize resource recovery.
For many of our municipalities, we invest in infrastructure that supports material recovery operations. Oftentimes, implementing technology and infrastructure are how we help cities reach their long-term sustainability objectives. This means updating the facilities where we operate, and building new facilities as needed.
