Containers and packaging make up a major portion of municipal solid waste (MSW), amounting to 82.2 million tons of generation in 2018 (28.1 percent of total generation)."
Much of that packaging is made of plastic and it isn't as easily recycled as we've been led to believe so it often ends up in incinerators or landfills.
Only 9% of plastic waste is recycled (15% is collected for recycling but 40% of that is disposed of as residues). Another 19% is incinerated, 50% ends up in landfill and 22% evades waste management systems and goes into uncontrolled dumpsites, is burned in open pits or ends up in terrestrial or aquatic environments, especially in poorer countries.
How the refill program works
Either provide your own reused empty containers or purchase from our selection of aluminum and glass. You continue to reuse from your own set and are responsible for washing when necessary.
Make selections ahead of time through customer portal. When we pick up the containers to be filled we'll confirm then bill and have your return delivery within 48 hrs.
