Associated Refuse’s environmentally conscious recycling program has evolved over the years from bottles, cans, waste paper, stable waste, bedding, food waste, manure, paper office products and polystyrene to include juice boxes, cardboard and food waste recycling.


“We are experts in recycling food waste into 100% organic fertilizer thereby enhancing the environment,” says President, Pat Caruso.”
