Running a publicly-owned MRF faces a unique set of recycling challenges.

They must:

  • Run effective, efficient facilities
  • Demonstrate appropriate use of taxpayer dollars
  • Work within mandated budgets
  • Engage with key stakeholders: residents, taxpayers, elected officials
  • Hire and train public employees in management roles
  • Recruit and retain a safe, loyal workforce

Running a public MRF is no easy task. That’s why cities and counties from coast-to-coast partner with Leadpoint as their operating partner.

Embedded side-by-side with your employees, Leadpoint will continuously improve system efficiency and recovery from your waste stream and help you demonstrate the value of recycling to your stakeholders.

“We started with Leadpoint in 2020. We wanted a safety culture to go beyond physical safety. Another motivator for us was to get away from temp labor, where it’s just a matter of filling in spots. Leadpoint demonstrated its efficiency in turnover and retention while providing our workforce with higher pay and benefits. I confidently recommend Leadpoint to anyone who operates/runs any recycling facility. As a dedicated and knowledgeable industry partner, I know Leadpoint will benefit any organization.”
