What Makes Us Progressive / Educational Resources

We Empower Our Communities With Educational Resources

Want to learn about a career in environmental services? Ever wondered where your recycled material ends up? Need to educate your custodial staff on the latest waste diversion techniques?

You can find the answers to these questions and more by contacting us.

As the progressive leader in our markets, we supply an array of educational resources to the communities we serve.

For students, we host field day excursions to our facilities and participate in the classroom by providing speakers and thought-provoking educational literature that helps kids learn how to protect the environment.

For members of the community, we stage open houses and site tours that take you behind the scenes for a critical look at our key processes and our sustainability activities.

And for our customers, we have developed informative teaching aids designed to increase diversion rates and are always available for on-site consultations.

For those wishing to dig deeper, we also operate two community education centers:

  • At our Seneca Meadows Landfill in upstate New York, students and members of the local community attend our education center to learn about recycling, alternative energy and environmental monitoring.
  • At our Lachenaie Landfill in Quebec, students take part in learning programs around sustainability, the environment and waste minimization.

We believe that today’s students will invent tomorrow’s technological breakthroughs, and we want to be part of their efforts.

Throughout our service region, our facilities stand beside the bright young minds of our communities with college scholarships that assist students in reaching their full potential.

And we fund school improvement projects that help all children.
