Although there could be only one winner last Sunday night at MetLife Stadium, it was a different story at a pre Super Bowl event at Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport, Connecticut, where we had a “souper” time partnering with Chowdafest to make their Feb. 2 chowder tasting competition a zero-waste event.
Now in its sixth year, Chowdafest brought together 28… – Read more at: SustainableAmerica.org Chowdafest Diverts Food Waste, Feeds Hungry
About 6 months ago it was decided a complete overhaul was needed of our web site. The goal was to create a website that was more representative of the company that we all pride ourselves in being. We hope that this website serves “You” the customer above all else with the level of service that you have come to expect from us over the last 40 years. Please take some time to explore the site, provide us some feedback, and maybe even pick up some recycling tips along the way!

Do you really know how to recycle with single stream?
You’ve probably been recycling for years. But do you know if you’re doing it right?
All American Waste, a recycling and waste removal company, was having a problem with contaminated recycling finding its way to the processing plant. To help customers understand the do’s and don’ts of single stream recycling, they turned to Geomatrix for help.
According to Geomatrix producer, James Chianese, “We spent a lot of time in our first meeting learning all that we didn’t know about recycling. After that, we strategized how we could help AAW get their message out not only to their customers, but also to the rest of the community.” A short, animated info-graphic was proposed as a fun way to engage the audience while re-enforcing the messages. Geomatrix motion graphics artist Tom Coben got to work and the end result is ready for release on all social channels.
Watch the animation – you’ll be surprised at what you don’t know, and we promise it will be a fun way to spend the next 90 seconds.
Then, please recycle it – by sharing the link with your friends.
