Going Green: Recycling Audits

At First Star, we’re proud to offer recycling audits to our commercial clients. These office recycling audits are an easy way to ensure that we are providing the most complete service possible for your business. No two offices are the exact same, and recycling audits give our resource management professionals a more detailed understanding of the unique recycling challenges that your office faces.

A First Star resource management professional will travel to your office building and create a comprehensive waste management report. Our trusted process includes reviewing all current waste streams and getting feedback from the custodial and management staff that are the most knowledgeable about the specific waste management needs of your business. Once we have obtained the necessary data and interviews, our team of resource specialists will craft a custom waste management plan designed specifically for your work space.
