What the Industry is Saying About Us…

We’re a condiments manufacturer and each month we find ourselves drowning in tiny packets of expired mustard, ketchup, salsa and mayonnaise. SMC Zero Waste implemented a creative and productive solution. Their equipment extracts and separates the contents from the packets. In addition to recycling the food waste stuff, the plastic packets were recycled as well. We save money on waste removal, we remain in compliance and we’re contributing to the planet. That’s winning all the way around.

Food Processor

Our company manufacturers and processes multiple brands of super sacks, which as a result produces scrap metal, various plastics and expired food products. These packages products cannot be taken to a landfill as-is. SMC Zero Waste is certified in de-packaging and destruction so we are able to remain in compliance. The recycling process, which once required multiple vendors to accomplish, is now efficiently controlled by SMC Zero Waste.
