Single-Stream Recycling Services NYC | Crown Waste
Our Commitment to Sustainability

Sustainable Waste

Single stream recycling is a revolutionary waste management process that streamlines the collection of diverse recyclables into a single bin or cart. These recyclable items include newspaper, cardboard, plastic, aluminum, and even junk mail.

A waste management company efficiently collects these materials using a single truck, and transports them to a materials recovery facility. Here, the recyclables are sorted into distinct commodity streams. This not only enhances the efficacy of recycling services, but also contributes to sustainable waste management.

This innovative approach not only simplifies the process for residents, but also helps waste disposal companies with cost savings through reduced collection expenses.
