What is ORGANIC RECYCLING? (And, do we have to?)

What is ORGANIC RECYCLING? (And, do we have to?)We think it’s safe to say that a majority of us know we are supposed to recycle plastic, aluminum, glass and paper - or at least, we know we’re supposed to. But what most people don’t know is that organic materials makes up close to 40% of our residential trash. This includes things like food scraps, non-recyclable paper napkins, egg cartons and pizza boxes from delivery.For too long, the only options were to throw food scraps away or start your own compost pile.

Creative Ways to Recycle

The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud, for all to hear!

From all of us at Randy's we wish you, and yours a very Merry Christmas!

This lucky little kitten will now get to share Christmas with her new family. Early afternoon on Friday, November 25th as our recycle drivers came to bring their load to our Recycle Material Recovery Facility (MRF), the employees noticed a kitten fall from the truck among the heap of recycle containers. This tough little kitten worked its way up to the top of the pile.

With the city's residential solid waste disposal contract due to expire Dec. 31, 2016, Buffalo City Council unanimously voted to terminate its contract with Waste Management, and accept a new five-year deal with Randy's Sanitation effective Jan. 1, 2017.

This Sunday on September 11th, Randy’s will pay tribute to the men and women, law enforcement, and fire fighters that lost their lives in this tragic event 15 years ago.  We will parade around the west metro with large flags attached to our trucks to honor those that were lost, and give our support to those that continue to put their lives on the line for our safety.
