Greener Advantage

Roy Strom offers GREENER residential and commercial services than our competitors. We work with our customers to:

  • Design residential programs that result in cleaner air, reduced municipal costs, and safer, less congested streets and alleyways
  • Offer convenient, affordable, and space-efficient commercial collection formats that provide GREENER waste collection solutions that work!

Our equipment allows us to collect refuse and recycling from commercial and residential customers in one pass with one truck and, in certain cases, in one container. The truck body is divided into two completely separate collection chambers. The materials (refuse and recyclables) are not commingled. Refuse is placed on one side of the collection hopper with recyclables on the other.

  • One truck, one pass down your alley or street provides a GREENER service advantage to your business or residential community. The number of large trucks needed to collect refuse/recyclables on public alleys and streets is cut in half. Using fewer trucks reduces:
    • GHG emissions released in commercial and residential environments
    • Damage to alleys, streets, parking lots, and utilities
    • Noise in commercial and residential environments
    • Traffic safety concerns
    • Fuel consumption
  • The specially designed GREENER collection container saves space and is more convenient
  • The GREENER dual collection format encourages recycling thus reducing the amount of waste collected for final disposal
  • Increased recycling reduces disposal costs

Roy Strom offers a number of refuse and recycling containers for commercial and residential use in its Greener Advantage and semi- and fully-automated collection programs. Click here to view recycling containers.

The opportunity to explore how a Greener Advantage solution may be developed for your business, community, multi-family building, or complex is just an email or phone call away. For more information, call 708-344-5000 or 630-469-5005.
