Waste and recycling services are important concerns for the smooth running of businesses and communities. Waste companies may offer general disposal services, or focus on the collection of sanitary, hazardous or medical waste, or other specific groups of materials. Recycling companies may be private or paid for by the state. They may collect a range of materials
including glass, plastic, paper and printing materials. Private firms may charge a fee for disposal and recycling, or may pay a small amount on collection of reusable products such as ink cartridges, mobile phones or other hardware. The following organisations are providers of waste management solutions and recycling services, including waste tracking technology, shredding machines, paper balers, water processing, contract cleaning services, and equipment for business recycling projects.
