COVID-19 Policy and Update


Due to recent events we, at ABC Recycling, want to inform our customers and vendors of the precautions we are taking during the COVID-19 outbreak. We remain open for business to continue serving our customers while maintaining the safety of our employees and their loved ones as our highest priority. We appreciate your patience in allowing us to update you, our valued customers and vendors, as we navigate this fluid situation.

All our team members have received additional education on COVID-19 protocols  and we will be implementing the following controls and social distancing techniques:

  1. Increased hygiene and disinfecting protocols for high touchpoints and customer waiting areas.
  2. Minimize social gathering by limiting the face to face interactions with all individuals.
  3. During any face to face interactions, personnel must ensure to maintain 2 meters (6’) of distance from others.
  4. We have started to conduct meetings via online or phone calls & site visits are subject to necessity.
  5. We advise anyone who feels sick or is showing symptoms of COVID-19 to stay at home and not enter our premises.

  2. All orders must be done via phone or email and payments are accepted through credit cards.
  3. We have designated an area for customer order pick-ups and customers are required to stay in vehicles during loading.
