Waste is a terrible thing to waste.
If an organization doesn’t recycle their paper waste properly, natural resources end up in landfills. That’s not good news. Goals for sustainability go unmet, and opportunities to earn revenue are lost.
But if an organization doesn’t work with Mid America to recycle their paper waste, it’s an even worse situation. Because they may think their current recycling process is as good as it gets. They’ll never know how much more value could be captured from their paper waste. And that’s almost like throwing money into a landfill.
Your waste is worth more than you think.
Savvy managers know that sustainability goals can be met without compromising growth targets. But we find they often aren’t aware how much more revenue they could be collecting from their paper waste. It’s our job to maximize efficiency and value generation for our customers, and we know how to help make it happen. After all, we’ve been doing it for over 90 years.
Mid America designs recycling solutions for client partners that align with their individual growth opportunities while also supporting the environment. We’ve done it for municipalities and companies ranging from small businesses all the way up to multinationals in the Fortune 500. When you work with us, you can expect:
- A strategic growth partnership mentality
- Extensive services and deep expertise
- A focus on maximizing revenue contributions
- Mill-direct insights not found anywhere else
- Expert execution of the whole game plan
Most importantly, your waste stream will become a growing value stream.
Growing the worth of your waste starts with a free waste audit.
This is a proven process, based on continuous improvement methods, that forms the foundation for our strategic business partnership with you. After a comprehensive site audit, we will develop a plan to improve the flow of waste through plants, improve your processes, ensure efficient shipping, achieve zero waste goals, and generate more revenue per ton. Companies that have completed a waste audit with us have found that they can increase their revenues from paper
recycling by up to 50%!
We’ll show you who wants your waste the most.
There is a paper mill willing to pay more for your waste than anyone else, and we’re going to help you find it. We have long-standing relationships with paper mills who have come to rely on us as a preferred supplier. We understand the equipment they’re using and which paper grades they need. This means we’re able to maintain your waste’s value and maximize revenue, despite the natural ups and downs of the market.
Minimize the revenue you’re losing in shipment.
In this industry, logistics can be a significant drain on revenue. We’ve made it a competitive advantage. Our own trucking fleet has 150 trailers, backed by a network of freight brokers, individual carriers, electronic logistics boards, and 3rd party logistics partners. Overseeing it all is a team of logistics coordinators who manage our brokerage division’s transportation needs. Your waste will move efficiently to the buyers that want it the most.
An outstanding recycling plan, perfectly executed and tracked.
Mid America is responsive and accountable to your organization’s goals for sustainability and increased revenue. We will never stop looking for ways to simplify the supply chain and make the process even more efficient and profitable. As we conduct quarterly meetings to review progress and agree on next steps, the status of individual projects, accurate and timely reporting on flows, rates, payments, recycling values, overall revenue generated and all of its resulting environmental impacts are tracked every step of the way.
