We help businesses, educational and governmental institutions (both large and small) achieve their goals of responsibly managing waste on a day-to-day basis; and thereby realize their commitments to corporate social responsibility, environmental sustainability and cost control. We prioritize low-cost resource management and recycling programs that fit each organization’€s specific needs.


Our Roots 

Save That Stuff, Inc. was founded in 1990 with one truck (actually, a 1971 vintage VW Double Cab – half bus and half pick-up truck) to provide cost-effective alternatives to traditional waste disposal….way back when there were few alternatives to disposing of recyclable waste streams.

Over the past 25 years, the Company has continued to evolve as businesses and communities recognize the value of removing recyclables from their waste streams.
