How does PourAway impact your environmental initiatives? Pouring collected liquid down a drain provides a “free and environmentally friendly” ride to the treatment plant and no carbon emissions from haulers. The disposal of trash bags NOT filled with liquid contaminant into a landfill reduces the production of water vapor, CO2, nitrous oxide and ozone emissions into the air.

PourAway is a great solution for any sustainability program migrating towards zero-waste.

In California, utilizing PourAway lids in your recycling program assists in being compliant with California AB1826. This legislation calls for a mandatory separation of organics from waste, meaning by law California businesses must now recycle their landscape cuttings and food waste depending on the amount of waste they generate per week.

With the PourAway Liquid Recycling System, “recycling is just a pour away”.
