What you need to know

There’s a chance you’ve been recycling paper, bottles, and plastic for a while now. But did you know that organics can also be recycled? Organics are being recycled globally at large volumes, and it’s our belief that organics don’t belong in landfills or incinerators. Instead, you can be converting organics into a variety of valuable new products.

  • Wood

    Wood waste can take quite a while to break down. Rather than sending it to the landfill, it’s much more beneficial to turn it into something useful and environmentally friendly instead. Rubicon can not only make this a reality but also educate you on the items we can help you save.
