Green America: Growing the Green Economy for People and the Planet

Trademark Waste Solutions
Quakertown, PA

Trademark Waste Solutions is a locally owned company based out of Quakertown, PA. The company began four years ago, andin that short time we have collected more than32,000 tons of waste. With each American generating more than one ton of municipal waste per year it was clear we needed to make the right choice in how we were going to handle disposing of that waste.

From the beginning we had two options, which were to save money utilizing a landfill or use a waste-to-energy plant. After researching it was clear we had no other choice but to protect our environment. Landfills create toxins like leachate, a liquid formed from decomposing landfills that leeches into our water systems, and also generate greenhouse gas emissions which are 20 times more potent than carbon dioxide. While recycling is increasingly expensive, it is important for our core values to ensure our children have a better future which is why we recycle all the waste we collect.

Trademark utilizes waste-to-energy plants which turn our trash into energy, by doing so we are reducing the volume of waste by 87 percent and conserving precious fossil fuels.  Our goal is to provide excellent customer service while giving back to our community, and making the world a better place for everyone. Trademark is also active in the community, giving back to those who helped us be where we are today.

Every three months we accept a community event to donate our service, and we were proud to be a part of "Pitt in the Parkway" which supports research for the Pitt-Hopkins syndrome. So the next time you take your containers to the curb think about where your waste is going and how you can make the difference.
