The ReBusiness Partners Program is designed to support a local business or organization's efforts to reduce waste, increase recycling and composting, and adopt green purchasing practices. We worked with a few of our ReBusiness Partners and Thomas Hoebbel Photography to create a video promoting the program. It demonstrates how easy it is to participate in a waste assessment or reassessment and highlights some of the program's success stories.
What do committed ReBusiness Partners receive?
Public recognition from the community for their efforts to help the environment.
FREE assistance from Solid Waste throughout the process, including a waste assessment
In addition to receiving public recognition and assistance from the Tompkins County Department of Recycling and Materials Management, a ReBusiness Partner:

Helps sustain the community in which we live.
Complies with New York State and local laws.
