Going Green from the Ground Up!
We realize the importance of minimizing the impact on the environment and are taking steps to make it convenient for all of our commercial waste collection customers to "go green." By providing recycling services customized to meet the requirements of each and every construction project, we aim to make recycling smart and easy.
Here are just a few of the projects in which Novak Sanitary Service has played a key waste mitigation role.
