WasteCap has been busy since 1996, helping businesses find ways to transform waste into resources through reduction, reuse, recycling and composting. In 2005 we started recording that impact, which passed some major new milestones last year!
Waste is more than trash in a landfill, or litter in our parks and waters. Waste is the acres of habitat leveled to obtain material, the energy and water consumed to make and move products, the jobs created in recycling and remanufacture, and the cost savings of reuse and recycling.
On your own, every purchase you make and every piece of material you throw away makes a small impact on the resources wasted locally and around the world.
By working together we can move markets, create jobs, keep our communities healthy, and preserve the beauty of Wisconsin.
Please consider WasteCap in ways large and small this season, and beyond, with these simple options.
