Fee for Service
Bridging The Gap has been working on recycling programs for 25 years! We employ top experts in the region who have forged strong relationships with local vendors and haulers. Often, Bridging The Gap can set up a recycling or waste-reduction program faster, cheaper, and with better results than hiring an outside firm.
If your business is located in Missouri, you may qualify for a free consultation (afforded to you by the Mid-America Regional Council Solid Waste Management District and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources).
If you are in Kansas or do not qualify for our free program, we can still help for a consulting fee. We’ve helped some of the region’s top firms including Burns & McDonnell, Chiefs, Veolia, and Faultless Starch.
WASTE AUDIT CONSULTING – $4,000
BTG can provide waste audit services, consisting of a full analysis of your company’s waste stream. The audit will identify types of waste generated, categorize recyclable and non-recyclable materials, and a calculation of your current diversion rate. This service includes a written report with full audit results and recommendations for increasing recoverable material. Past clients include Burns & McDonnell.
ZERO-WASTE-TO-LANDFILL CONSULTING – $7,000-$14,000
BTG can provide expertise in assisting your business in the process of going Zero Waste to Landfill, wherein your waste system is restructured so that all products are reused or recycled, and little, to no waste is sent to landfills. Our services include a full waste assessment, help in the creation of an internal sustainability team, finding haulers and/or outlets for difficult waste streams, creation of metrics to track waste and diversion, creation of internal recycling collection areas, personalized signage, employee training and long-term system trouble-shooting. Typically the process takes 6-12 months. Kansas City is very fortunate to have Systech Environmental and Missouri Organic, two vendors that make going ZERO WASTE TO LANDFILL a possibility.Past clients include Faultless Starch/Bon Ami Company and Veolia.
