Technical Assistance & Engagement

Gear and Wrench - Tech AssistFull Circle has been at the forefront of business outreach and assistance since its inception more than twenty years ago. Working with businesses continues to be a strong suit of our people and programs, and has been a core of Full Circle’s success.

Full Circle staff have proven equally adept at working with individual custodians, high-rise building owners, tenant recycling leaders, property managers, waste and recycling collection companies, small business owners, and municipal recycling coordinators.

With our put-you-at-ease-and-get-you-jazzed people skills and a detailed technical knowledge, our efforts have resulted in large, measurable waste diversion and increased recycling. Our contributions to client’s business programs have included developing effective outreach and education materials as well as providing structural and service-level recommendations.

Our work often goes beyond recycling and waste management to support businesses in improving their energy use, overall sustainability efforts, buy-recycled practices, water conservation and greenhouse gas impacts.
