Over the last few decades, proper waste disposal and management has become more important than ever, amid growing consumption and waste production, with potentially hazardous consequences for the environment. Despite environmental protection organizations and authorities’ recommendations, recycling efforts are still scarce, both on a residential and industrial level. In this landscape, professional waste management operators such as Florida-based National Waste Management Holdings, Inc. (OTC: NWMH) have taken on a bigger role in raising public awareness and ultimately working for a better and greener tomorrow via a comprehensive suite of waste disposal services ranging from pick-up to recycling and landfill operations.
It is estimated that the United States generates more than 250 million tons of municipal solid waste every year, and that an average person typically creates about four pounds of waste a day. According to Environmental Protection Agency data, about 75 percent of this waste stream is recyclable, yet only roughly 30 percent actually ends up being recycled. In addition to municipal solid waste, the U.S. also generates more than 500 tons of construction and demolition (C&D) debris every year – debris that needs to be disposed of in an eco-friendly manner.
National Waste Management Holdings is dedicated to recycling as much waste as possible from all of its services, with the primary goal of helping the State of Florida meet its mandate for 75 percent recycling by 2020. The company already offers a wide range of waste management services, most notably a 54-acre landfill in Hernando, Florida. The landfill services Hernando, Citrus and Marion counties and disposes of approximately 240,000 cubic yards of C&D debris every year. In addition to the landfill, National Waste Management Holdings also offers roll off waste container rental services, container drop off and pick up services and a line of proprietary mulch manufactured from recycled wood collected at its landfill and transfer station.
The company estimates that at least 12 percent of Florida’s 75 percent recycling mandate can be achieved by recycling C&D debris that is currently being disposed. For that purpose, National Waste Management Holdings has transformed its services and changed its fundamental business model, with plans in the coming year to set up a portable sorting line at its landfill and increase recyclable rates. The sorting line can help the company increase its concrete recycling program by an estimated 25 percent and also to pick clean dimensional lumber to be sold to wood pellet manufacturers. The sorting line also picks shrink wrap plastic and cardboard for recycling.
Working closely with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and having a strong commitment to being environmentally conscious in all its activities and services, National Waste Management Holdings is positioning itself as a leading provider of waste and C&D debris management operations for both the commercial and the residential sectors. Currently servicing several counties on Florida’s west coast, the company has already expanded operations into New York, is collaborating with the State of Georgia, and has plans for further expansion all throughout the East Coast.
