Complete peace of mind when removing, disposing and recycling TV and Production waste. 

TV and film production companies generate commercial waste, which must be handled by licensed waste carriers for safe and legal disposal. Efficient waste management is crucial to protect the environment and your business.

Productions often need daily waste removal for things like food waste and general trash to keep sets clean and prevent overflowing bins. At the end of production, an additional one-time waste collection may be necessary.

During filming, it's important to have the right number and type of bins across the set. These bins should be placed near waste production areas but out of the way of filming. Different bins help the cast and crew separate waste, increasing recycling and sustainability.
