The Sierra Conservation Project and Bishop Waste Disposal are expanding recycling services in Bishop into a collaborative effort known as “The Black and Blue Make Green” program.
“Recycling is at the core of a company’s goal of sustainability and it’s the core of our commitment to diverting material away from the landfill,” commented Patrick Fenton, Bishop Waste Disposal Manager.
The growth of SCP’s residential and commercial recycling programs in Inyo County has been strong over the past five years. By partnering with Bishop Waste Disposal, the two companies will be able to expand upon the existing recycling services available, while at the same time discounting rates on those services. Bishop Waste Disposal will begin servicing some of SCP’s residential recycling routes beginning Dec. 1 in order to maximize efficiency though the use of their larger automated trucks. In addition, SCP and BWD have made improvements and added equipment at SCP’s existing recycling facility located at the Bishop Sunland Landfill.
One of the most exciting improvements to recycling services will be the addition of large scale commercial cardboard recycling available for businesses wishing to recycle their cardboard materials.
Bishop residents can now enjoy Bishop Waste Disposal’s black trash cart along with SCP’s blue recycling cart and service for one low price of $29.99 per month. Sign up for service by visiting www.recyclesierra.com or calling 760.872.6561.
