Sustainable Practices – Recycling

BCLS Landscape Services


With our “Think Recycle/Buy Recycled” mindset, we recycle materials from our landscape construction, installation, and maintenance business units to help reduce landfill waste. Our program includes the following:

Biodegradable Landscape Waste:

All biodegradable landscape waste generated by BCLS Landscape Services is recycle into either compost or mulch. Bulk waste such as tree brush, wood waste and shrub pruning material is placed in dumpsters and brought to our wood-waste processor. This material is turned into bulk mulch which in return is sold to landscapers for mulch supply and installation.

Plastics and Recycle Materials:

Internally and externally we recycle all plastic materials including flower pots and containers from shrubs. We also recycle all our paper, cardboard and other allowable recycled materials.

Some other examples of our sustaianblity program include:

  • Printers and copiers are set to double side automatically as well as toner save. All nonconfidential printouts are reused on the reverse side for note taking, reprinting or working concept drawings.
  • Where possible, our invoices and statements are emailed, which saves paper and transportation emissions.
  • Where possible, and in most cases, we choose to send emails rather than mail information, including our newsletter, which is sent by email.
  • All our computers, monitors and appliances are turned off overnight and when not in use. Office toner cartridges are recycled when empty rather than discarded and replaced.

We hope that through our sustainable actions, our people, our clients and the wider population are motivated to act and live in an environmentally sustainable manner. Want to learn more about our water management program, contact us at 804.752.0052 or by completing our Contact Us Form.
