Nebraska Recycling Council provides consultation services to business enterprises in the areas of Green Team Development, Zero Waste, Waste Assessments and Waste Sorts.

  • Waste assessments can provide your organization with recommendations to improve waste reduction and recycling, container size, placement, and signage, right-sizing for cost-effectiveness, and custodial processes.
  • A waste sort or audit will give your company an accurate snapshot of what is in your trash and recycling containers and tell you where improvements can be made.
  • Nebraska Recycling Council has trained TRUE Advisors on staff to help your organization achieve zero waste at your facility. TRUE stands for Total Resource Usage and Efficiency. TRUE certification is the certification of a facility that has met TRUE zero waste standards set by Green Business Certification, Inc. (GBCI). 
  • Green Teams can help employees overcome barriers to behavior change and their effectiveness is better ensured with training and tools. NRC staff has the experience to help your Green Team off to a good start and provide simple tools for them to stay engaged. Learn More
