A Better Environment

A Better Environment When we say “The Way to A Better Environment”, we’re talking about the choices we all can make to reduce the impact of business practices, our purchases and our discarded materials. We provide our customers with numerous options to reduce what they send to the landfill and turn their trash into a resource via recycling and composting. Western’s environmental efforts also include a focus on the business practices we use in our collection and operations: our continued investment in less polluting natural gas-powered trucks, wind power purchases, non-toxic cleaning materials and more.
