a better process

Recycling with Asta Works means that more of your recyclables actually get recycled, less emissions are created and more energy is saved throughout the process.

Current Process:

Mixed recyclables pass through many separators, often overseas, creating excessive emissions and waste.

Our Process:

Separated Asta Works recyclables go straight to domestic manufacturers, which reduces emissions, waste and allows us to reward you!


What we are currently offering as rewards for recycling:

Major Airline Miles

Amazon Gift Cards

Blue Bottle Coffee
