Why Buy Recycled?

What is considered a recycled product?

A recycled product is entirely made up of recycled materials. However, there are many recycled products that are made up of less than 100% recycled materials and those are accurately called recycled content products. Some examples of recycled content products (RCP) are printer cartridges.


Saves the environment

Did you know 20 boxes of recycled paper can save trees, oil, water and 4100 kwh of energy? According to the Department of Conservation, not only do recycled materials like paper save on trees, oil, water, energy, but recycled materials also eliminate pollution.

Conserve Landfill Space

Recycled materials don’t make it into a landfill, so landfill space is saved.

The story behind single-stream recycling

California was one of the first places that single-stream recycling has started. It began in a few communities in the 1990s and expanded to ⅕ of communities throughout the country 15 years later.

There are two advantages to single-stream recycling

Convenience. It is so much easier for individuals to put all recyclables in one bin than having to sort them out themselves.

Increased numbers. Since single-stream recycling is as easy as putting all recyclables in one place, more households participate in this new program.

Believe it or not, we are very social beings! Unfortunately, large corporations are too busy looking at the bigger picture rather than individual customers.

Here are 5 reasons why you should choose a small business:

  1. Small businesses are customer focused

Providing Salt Lake City Waste Management

Founder Loch Michie has been involved with managing property nearly his entire life until switching gears to start Tiger Sanitation, a Salt Lake City waste management company.


When Loch was young, his father Jim Michie and business partner Rodger Thompson began their life careers of owning and managing multi-family communities. In the early days, their niche was old (now historic) apartment high rises in downtown Salt Lake City that they converted into condos.

During these acquisitions, Loch spent many hours and days helping to make the necessary improvements to the building structures and grounds. Operations director Trevor Buchan’s first job was Maintenance Tech for a property management firm where he oversaw special projects at several apartment communities.

We know what it is like to be on the other side of the table when we do business with apartment managers. We know what is important to our customers, how to be better than our competitors, and I believe that is why we are so popular.

We at Tiger Sanitation see recycling as a big opportunity for our business in Salt Lake and believe that apartment dwellers, managers, and owners will benefit in many ways as well.
