Environmental Practices

S&A Container Service has a 100% waste diversion goal. That means we make every attempt to recycle dumpster rental contents whenever possible. Eco-friendly junk removal keeps recyclable material out of landfills, helping to protect the environment. S&A Container Service recycles as much as possible including construction and demolition debris, asphalt, carpet, clean wood, concrete bricks, corrugated cardboard, glass, gypsum board, land clearing debris, metals, and plastic. We provide LEED project documentation upon request.

With eco-friendly junk removal in mind, we divert all of our filled dumpsters to transfer stations. These recycling stations use only state-of-the-art technology specializing in high-rate and reliable recycling practices. We ensure they offer reliable recycling of mixed waste construction, household debris, renovation, and construction and demolition debris.  All of our chosen disposal sites have a goal of at least 80% diversion. This helps to keep your waste out of landfills and into the proper recycling center.

We’ll gladly assist you with environmental regulations, LEED documentation, and waste types based on your project description. Give us a call at 631-648-9088 if you have any questions about the environmental requirements of your junk hauling project.
