Bellevue Commercial Recycling Technical Assistance

People Spiral

In close concert with City of Bellevue Recycling Staff, the Full Circle team worked directly with hundreds of businesses to help improve their recycling and waste management practices.

Full Circle demonstrated great success in achieving measurable waste diversion and increased recycling—whether targeting shopping mall tenants, high-rise property managers, stand-alone Mom-and-Pops, hotels, warehouses or other types of businesses. We build quick rapport, demonstrate a credible depth of knowledge, offer creative yet practical solutions, relentlessly follow-up and portray the city in a positive, helpful light (often by providing chocolate ).

We retain program elements that work and we are quick to develop new techniques and approaches to constantly improve our success rate. Recently we created the Refresh Recycling program to expand business recycling activity.

Over the years of program implementation we have also: assisted the city with implementing Zero Waste Picnics, partnered with the Bellevue Chamber of Commerce to distribute information, developed property-manager newsletters, provided waste-stream sorts, distributed signage and recycling containers, and arranged for the city manager to make a presentation at Overlake Hospital commending them on their much improved recycling system (which they implemented following our technical assistance).
