THE FUTURE OF RECYCLING
Ever think of what the future of waste disposal and recycling might look like? At Draglam Waste & Recycling, we have thought of some surprising possibilities that could come to a city near you sooner than you might think.
Recycling is an important component of protecting the environment and helping our local communities. Recycling helps conserve resources and energy, preserves valuable landfill space and supports a healthy environment. At Draglam Waste & Recycling, we carefully sort all waste to maximize recycling efforts, significantly reducing the amount of waste going to landfills. Our current system allows us to efficiently recycle over 75% of the materials that come into the transfer stations.
