Greg Lettieri, co-founder of New York City-based RTS is bringing a variation on Uber’s playbook to recycling. RTS connects local recycling haulers with business recyclers in several states, delivering recycling training and services to employees along with a complete accounting of what happens to materials after they are picked up. By focusing on the logistics of recycling, RTS enables flexible business solutions that have improved recycling rates at Citi Field in New York and Nationals Stadium in Washington, D.C., among other locations. Earth911’s Mitch Ratcliffe discusses how RTS started, the role of technology, and the value of accountability in recycling in this Innovator Interview. Your business can start with a free waste assessment.
