Using a locally owned refuse and recycling company is an easy way to shop local.
Studies have shown that when you use an independent, locally owned business,
rather than a national business, significantly more of your money stays within
the local economy.
Furthermore, local businesses are owned by people who live within our community.
Local business owners tend to be more invested in Lincoln's growth and future
since this is where they choose to call home.
"When you shop at a locally owned business, it's estimated that your dollar has
three times the impact on your community as a dollar spent at national chains"
- Mayor Chris Beutler, November 24, 2014, Lincoln Journal Star
