Setting up recycling solutions for grocery chains and retail stores can help ensure the sustainability of your company.

Commercial and retail sales, including grocery chain sales, account for about 25% of The United States’ Gross Domestic Product, making this industry a significant producer of recyclable material. Consumer-facing industries typically create a lot of waste before their products even hit the shelves. From corrugated cardboard boxes shipped on wood pallets to shrink film and protective polybags, most of our goods arrive shipped in multiple layers of packaging. In fact, recent studies estimate that over 90% of scrap produced by the fast food, convenience store, retail, and grocery industries is recoverable material—but, on average, these industries recycle about 29% of their waste streams.

Make sure that you’re getting the most out of your industry’s waste products. Choosing sustainability and recycling your company’s byproducts is not only good for the planet, it’s also great for your bottom line.
