The Company We Keep
Hear what our customers have to say
City of Alameda
“I can’t tell you how much this container is getting praise around here. The Public Works Director attended an Executive Management Team meeting in that conference room at City Hall with the new unit, and he was sure to let me know that the container received several compliments. These will catch on like wildfire in that beautiful old building that needs better recycling options than just a dumpy blue pail.
Thanks so much for providing us such a beautiful custom container! Now we just need to figure out our next order, which will include the Alameda Police Dept unit!
Alameda is clearly a big CleanRiver fan! This is not our first, nor our last, purchase.”
“We were put in contact with Tom Lembo in early October. Within 2 weeks we were able to finalize our full order with ease. Tom always responded to our emails in a timely fashion, even when he was traveling at tradeshows. I value good customer service and I felt it was important to forward this feedback to the company. Tom made this process easy and smooth and answered all questions on our end. Tom even suggested some training tools for our employees in order for our company to become efficient in recycling. It is difficult to find valuable people who truly make a difference with a client, and Tom did exactly that.
CleanRiver will definitely be recommended to all our business partners.
The Bins are phenomenal and arrived earlier than expected. We are now in the process of placing our New Recycling Bins in the appropriate locations.
Thank you CleanRiver for the value you put in customer satisfaction!”
“The addition of the recycle bins along with the correct location of the bins has been an outstanding success and we look forward to even more improvement with the new bins provided this year that are located at all entrances. We are very pleased with the progress we have made recycling and appreciative of the help we have received.”
The Scarborough Hospital
“On behalf of the Green Army Team at TSH, I would like to thank Karen Morris for the outstanding patience and the excellent work she has done to help us improve our waste diversion rates.
When I first contacted CleanRiver I was skeptical to learn that we would be provided more than just a sales rep and product. Karen proved us wrong. She has not only provided outstanding suggestions and ideas, but she has also taken the time to work with us to create and establish a recycling program that has potential and room for growth at TSH.
We have recently purchased exterior waste receptacles and although we have not placed them in their designated spots, all who have seen them have nothing but positive things to say about the bins, quality and format.
I look forward to continuing to work with CleanRiver and especially Karen as we embark into our next stages and work on the interior bin selections.”
“We made a major purchase of two different CleanRiver units for our campus. In both locations, our newly renovated student center and our athletic fields, both aesthetics and function were of utmost importance. The CleanRiver TIM and Excel Slant top units ended up being perfect for the locations. They look great and are very functional. Thank you also for the great customer service through the process!”
“We LOVE the new bins! They look awesome and are definitely what we’ve been wanting. I definitely hope to purchase more bins in the future, I imagine we’ll be looking at additional TRH bins for the academic buildings.”
Société des musées de sciences et technologies du Canada
“The project has been a success and people of the different sites from the Corporation are really integrating the concept. The signs and the bins were perfect for the purpose.
People find the signs really clear and precise. I have received only good comments about the different bins and the signage so far.”
Virginia Beach Convention Centre
“Thank you for everything you did to have my five recycling stations delivered one week before my requested deadline. I truly appreciate the outstanding service! The graphics and the stations as a whole look fantastic, and the staff here at the convention center are also impressed with this quality product.”
Better visitor experience and service for Little Rock Zoo, Arkansas
“We tried to have a recycling program before but didn’t have enough manpower to sort the garbage and the bags were too big and heavy to lift out of the bins. We researched some different…
companies and chose CleanRiver based on their competitive pricing and great customer service, but I was then impressed with their extra attention to construction detail:
- the bins sit about 2” off the ground so they don’t sit in the dirt like our old bins
- they have the extra support on the edges so they are really sturdy which is great as we move them around a lot
- the front opening doors are so much easier to service and our custodial staff report that we have doubled our collection of recyclables since using CleanRiver bins
We’ve received great visitor feedback because the bins are slim-line which helps with the traffic flow of visitors and both children and adults seem to really like the information graphics on the front of the bins explaining why you should recycle. We have a third stream at the exit for visitor’s maps and so far we’ve had 1% of our maps returned to us which is remarkable. We like CleanRiver’s competitive prices and good customer service and we love our bins, we will be ordering more!”
“We have multiple clients that have chosen CleanRiver recycling bins. They are high-quality, durable products with great signage options that help teach users how to properly sort what’s in their hand.
CleanRiver staff always go the extra mile to make sure people are happy with the products – and the fact that they are made from 100% recycled plastic is a great way to ‘close the loop’ from a sustainability perspective.”
The Illinois National Guard
“I have had the pleasure of working with CleanRiver for five years. We have purchased a large quantity of the 3 and 4 bin recycling stations for use at several of our facilities across the state (we have 54 facilities from Rockford to Cairo and Quincy to Danville). Based on several factors outlined below, we hope to purchase more in the future.
My experience with the quality and durability of products has been very good. We have the recycle stations located in high traffic areas and they look very professional, hold up quite well and are very easy for building maintenance personnel to maintain and move around if necessary. We take GREAT PRIDE in our facilities and the CleanRiver recycling stations look like they came with the facility.
To date, I have not been made aware of any problems with the stations. They are designed and built to be both efficient and fit into the interior building décor very nicely. I have worked with several people from CleanRiver. My initial assistance came from Bruce Buchan and he was ALWAYS very professional and easy to work with. All our requests were quickly taken care of. Over the last two-three years I have worked with several other staff members and their involvement with me would make Bruce proud. They were also very professional and easy to work with. All responses to my requests were timely and accurate.
Upon receipt of the stations from the factory, it was very obvious great care had been taken to ensure they arrived undamaged. This care impressed me and made me feel our business was appreciated. I would not hesitate to recommend this company and their products to any prospective buyer. You will be very pleased!! Kind Regards, Dave Miller”
