Thinking innovatively

Transforming waste to resources

Emterra Environmental USA is a company that offers residential, municipal and industrial, commercial and institutional (ICI) customers a fully integrated approach to managing trash, recyclables and yard waste.

We manage trash so you don’t have to. But we also collect recyclables so they can be processed and used to create new products, diverting these resources from landfill. In general, the materials that we collect for recycling include:

  • Paper fibers, cans, plastic, and glass bottles
  • Used and scrap tires
  • Stale-dated and un-saleable products.

We bring innovation, commitment and plain old hard work to the task of developing and managing material collection and resource recovery programs for all of our customers.

Established in 1976, our know-how stems from decades of resource recovery management in North America as a company that is:

  • Inspired by an entrepreneurial spirit
  • Focused on minimizing the environmental impacts of doing business
  • Striving to set an example in our industry by always searching for and developing best practices
  • Supporting the communities in which we live and do business.

The Emterra Group belongs to and supports a variety of professional organizations and associations in North America, some of which are highlighted below.
