THE HIDDEN BENEFITS OF A CERTIFICATE OF RECYCLING What Is It & Why You Need One

November 26, 2018

In simple terms, a certificate of recycling documents the amount and type of waste that is recycled by an organization and is proof that your company is compliant with the standards set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). While valuable, the benefit to your company doesn’t stop with government compliance. Below are three hidden advantages that make a certificate of recycling an indispensable asset to your company:

 

Provides Proof of Compliance with Government Requirements

 

The EPA recommends that to demonstrate compliance with government regulations, processors and handlers provide a certificate of recycling that includes key information such as materials recycled, amount and date of processing. This documentation ensures that your company is prepared in the event of inspections.

 

Supports Corporate Stewardship

 

As companies are becoming more environmentally aware, many are adopting a policy of corporate stewardship that addresses the interdependent nature of their relationship with the communities where they live and work. By securing a certificate of recycling you are demonstrating your commitment to the community, preserving the environment, as well as showcasing your corporate values.

 

Your Sustainable Business Practices Can Help Your Bottom-Line

 

Good business practices don’t stop with profitability and customer service. The Nielsen Global Corporate Sustainability Report shows that globally, 66% of consumers are willing to spend more on a product if it comes from a sustainable brand, with 58% specifically citing companies that are environmentally friendly. Put another way, a certificate of recycling from a well-respected waste organization not only demonstrates your compliance with the government, but also with your customers.

 

“TerraCycle Regulated Waste specializes in providing sustainable solutions for mercury-containing fluorescent bulbs, battery, ballast and electronic waste disposal,” said Bobby Farris, General Manager of TerraCycle Regulated Waste. “It has always been our policy to provide a certificate of recycling that details everything a customer would need to show compliance, not only with the government but also with their customers.”
