The new program has allowed Alfi International Inc to completely discontinue trash pickups with their waste removal operator. The company has actively switched almost all products and materials used in the operations and employee facilities to recyclable ones, and has switched exclusively to regular Recycling Pickups. Alfi is not yet a completely zero-waste facility since there is still a small amount of non-recyclable waste comprising of organic food waste and a few other non-recyclables. The company is working with local farmers to compost as well as diverting to other non-landfill streams.
Alfi International Inc (http://www.alfi.com) believes that this program is reflective of the Californian environmental tradition: “We are mostly proud of all our employees who have made this recycling program succeed. All it takes is one careless person to contaminate a recycling load, and the fact that our workforce rallied behind this program just goes to show what we’re made of as a company, and as Californians. I think anybody who lives in this region is confronted by such beauty on a grand scale that its only natural to be protective. We know that there is still a lot of work left to do and we will continue to work hard towards becoming a zero-waste facility by our goal of 2015.” says Adam Alfi, a general manager at the company.
