Benefits of employing TAS

Our TAS team works collaboratively with partners and their internal teams—from sustainability to operations to logistics—to develop and vet all plans, ensuring successful implementations for all stakeholders.

Rubicon is uniquely positioned with technology solutions, vendor partners, and customers along the waste supply chain and across the country. Our strong network empowers our TAS partners to uncover scalable circular economy solutions that might not otherwise be available.

Whether you work with us already or if TAS is our first engagement, we are able to draw upon cross-disciplinary knowledge and tried-and-true solutions to uncover efficiencies and cost-savings for your business.

Achieving your company’s waste diversion and sustainability goals requires data. You need to know the contents of your waste streams to properly develop programs and strategies to achieve your goals. We work with our customers to uncover actionable insights to inform all plans and programs.
