StopWaste

Location: California


On behalf of StopWaste.org of Alameda County, Cascadia provides technical assistance to businesses for the StopWaste Business Assistance Program. Program goals include maximizing the diversion of recoverable materials and increasing compliance with the county’s new mandatory recycling ordinance. Cascadia helped refresh existing materials, brought new tools, and developed new protocols to provide relevant and streamlined services to a larger number of businesses. Cascadia has also recruited, hired, and trained a multilingual outreach team to meet the county’s diverse cultural needs. Using onsite audits and industry-specific generation data, these trained multilingual outreach specialists provide customer-focused technical assistance to more than 1,000 businesses per year. As an extension of StopWaste.org, Cascadia assists businesses in complying with the new county mandatory recycling ordinance, recruits business to participate in the Business Assistance Program, and provides targeted assistance to individual businesses—to date reaching more than 3,300 businesses throughout Alameda County.

I was very pleased with the experience we had recently working with Cascadia to develop our carbon inventory and finalize our sustainable action guide. It’s a very daunting task to begin the process of changing the way we do business and measure our success so to have the combination of expertise and patience that you brought to the effort really made it enjoyable. I look forward to continuing to work with Cascadia as BNBuilders moves farther and farther along in this process.
