Dual-Stream Recycling for the Win! (Our 2021 Numbers)
As we wrap up 2021 and launch into 2022 we just want to celebrate the success of all that we (both Sundance and our customers) have accomplished.
What started as an idea to meet a need, has developed into a thriving business that is reaching neighborhoods and families across Fort Worth, Aledo, Godley, Cresson, Joshua, Burleson and Mansfield.
We are currently providing weekly recycling to 750 homes and processing around 3 tons of recycling a week. In 2021 we processed approximately 140 tons of recyclable material! The average weight of a blue whale! That is material that would have previously been sent straight to the landfill.
By changing the way that we recycle and implementing a dual-stream system we are able to recycle about 90% of the material that is sent to us as opposed to other recycle facilities where up to half can be thrown away!
We currently have 5 full-time Sundance recycling staff as well as 10 sorters that work each week processing the materials. We strive to offer a new kind of rural trash service that leaves the customers, employees and community feeling valued.
