Curbside & Multi-Family Waste Collection

Curbside & Multi-Family Collection

Emterra Environmental USA develops and implements solid waste collection services on behalf of municipalities and private sector companies with flexible programs to adapt to changes in our ever growing communities. City managers and residents require reliable, high quality waste and recycling collection services for their tax dollars and it’s our pleasure to provide just that. Private multi-unit residential property managers expect the same value for money. Emterra is a waste management company that delivers!

Trash, Recycling or Yard Waste Compost – We Want It!

We’re innovators in the waste management industry and always seek out opportunities to provide more efficient collection at lower costs with a better environmental footprint for our clients. We work with local partners to provide top quality, courteous services to maximize diversion of recyclable resources from the landfill.

Our municipal and private sector partners tell us Emterra Environmental USA’s waste collection services are  better than our competitors services and here’s why:

  • Residents receive quality customer service in the communities we serve
  • Our unique processes divert more garbage from landfills than their previous waste programs
  • We maximize efficiencies to lower program costs

In our North American operations, we often achieve “waste management success” differently for individual municipalities – designing services that put your municipality’s goals and priorities first. In some communities, our low carbon emission collection trucks, such as our compressed natural gas fleets, have driven cost savings and reduced the overall environmental impact of solid waste programs. In other communities, introducing single stream recycling programs, which allow residents to conveniently put all recyclables in one bin, have increased recycling rates as much as 40%. We know that each community offers unique challenges; we work as part of your team to identify opportunities to excel.

We all try to reduce trash but when there’s junk to dump, we make sure it goes to the right place. See if no sort – single stream recycling can make things easier for your communities. Put all your recyclables into the same bin to save time and space and divert more recyclables from landfill! Yard waste might be a big portion of your residents’ garbage bins now. Reducing your community’s carbon footprint with yard waste compost may even reduce your waste management costs by taking the weight out of garbage bins!

Large Items

Emterra also offers large item collection services. We can provide on-call pick up for large and bulky items placed at the curb including furniture (tables, chairs, mattresses) and appliances (from fridges and stoves to washers and dryers). If residents have garden and patio stuff to dispose of we can take care of that too.

Sustainability throughout Our Business

We believe in reducing the waste in our lives – we believe in Zero Waste. It’s not just what we do; it’s how we do it! Wherever possible, we use alternative fuels in our fleets (like compressed natural gas and biodiesel) and employ innovative processes and technology in our recycling facilities, to set and achieve new environmental standards for the industry.
