  • 1. Progressive Waste Management Kevin Murphy– National Sales Executive Greenstar Recycling
  • 2. Introduction Greenstar is one of America's recycling leaders and takes a fresh approach to waste management. We provide waste management services with a total commitment to landfill avoidance and transparency. Reduction of waste costs Landfill avoidance Fully transparent business model Offer a single management source for all solid waste and recyclables 9/20/2012 Progressive Waste Management 2
  • 3. Zero Waste Defined as 95% landfill avoidance Achieved by Counting waste that is diverted/reused/resourced in the manufacturing process Waste engineering – create a “beneficial waste” at the end of the commerce chain Often includes waste-to-energy component ‘Zero landfill’ should not be touted if waste-to-energy is a component unless all hierarchy steps are fully implemented 9/20/2012 Progressive Waste Management 3
  • 4. Recycling Commodity Valuation Our customers know that they receive the best possible prices for their materials and can clearly calculate the cost savings. Demand for commodities are tied to global economic growth, specifically China Prices have seen record highs and lows in the past 3 years Greenstar view for 2012 is demand for fiber and plastic will remain stable through the last quarter – subject to global economy continuing to grow Fixed price contracts are emerging as a tool to manage price volatility…terms of 12 -24 months are common (for fiber only) 9/20/2012 Progressive Waste Management 4
  • 5. Single Stream Recycling Eliminates the need for sorting recyclables - decreasing the cost of collection while increasing volume Mix all recyclables into one container - sorted by the recycler Revolutionized by Wal-Mart Growing rapidly in the residential/municipal sector which will fuel growth in the commercial waste sector 9/20/2012 Progressive Waste Management 5
  • 6. Single Stream Recycling • Pro Reduces trash hauler costs (collection, disposal, add-on fees) Improves landfill avoidance performance Reduces customer handling costs Increases volume • Con Can increase contamination Can reduce commodity value 9/20/2012 Progressive Waste Management 6
  • 7. Dry Waste Recycling Mix all waste and recycling into one container and have the material sorted by the recycler. Ideal for dry waste only Being used by large haulers to decrease disposal costs (“pre-disposal sort”) Has been growing rapidly even though customers/generators may be unaware Only beneficial to the customer/generator if the hauler and/or agent are transparent 9/20/2012 Progressive Waste Management 7
