Sanitary Service Company's Commitment to Community

Locally owned and operated since 1929, Sanitary Service Company (SSC) is Whatcom County’s largest recycling and garbage collection company. SSC is a practitioner of numerous “award-winning” programs that align with the mission and vision of our organization- providing an exemplary model for others. They have helped Whatcom County become a nationally recognized leader in waste management and sustainable business practices. They are also valuable supporters of our organization- providing solid financial support through event sponsorships and other donations.

SSC’s environmental commitment is shown through the breadth of their sustainable business practices. Since 2005, SSC's garbage and recycling trucks have been running on biodiesel fuel, which is biodegradable, non-toxic and virtually free of sulfur and aromatics, and reduces emissions by up to 20%. "We hope our actions will encourage other local fleets to consider biodiesel as their fuel choice," said SSC Co-Owner Paul Razore. As a Toward Zero Waste pioneer, SSC practices waste reduction, reuse and recycling with more than 80% of their internal business waste. They are also using 100% of their electricity through Puget Sound Energy's Green Power program, making SSC the largest private business in Whatcom County to use 100% Green Power. SSC was also the first collection company in Washington to be included in the EnviroStars program, earning 5 stars (the highest rating possible) for their leadership activities in reduction of both hazardous and non-hazardous solid wastes, and sustainable business practices.

Eric Moe, owner of Kulshan Cycles, salutes SSC for their role in our community, "I respect and admire SSC for their commitment to our community; from the events and organizations they support to the best practices they employ in their day to day operations".

As the presenting sponsor of the 2011 Environmental Heroes Awards Banquet, SSC is helping RE Sources honor the individuals and businesses that volunteer and work on behalf of our environment and advocate for sustainable communities. We are honored and grateful for their continued commitment and the strong relationship that we have built together over the years.
