Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable Assistant – Upwork

UsedCardboardBoxes & UCBZeroWaste (UCB) designs, implements and runs large-scale, fully zero waste programs by reducing waste (cost) and increasing recycling and reuse (revenue).

UsedCardboardBoxes was founded in 2006 and is the largest processor of USED gaylord totes, produce totes, resin/octo-bins and shipping boxes in North America. We can pay much more than recycling rates because we don’t recycle! We REUSE, RESELL and RETURN them, as is, right here in the US. USED totes are mainly sold to major retailers for reverse logistics, or to large scrap processors (metal, plastic, paper, etc.) to sort/transport commodities. USED shipping boxes are sold mainly to major retailers for distribution from DC to store and many are used to create UCB’s eco-friendly moving kits, sold online. As a closed-loop RETURN program, gaylord totes, resin bin and shipping boxes can be sorted, inspected, palletized, inventoried and RETURNED back to the original vendor, for reuse (at significant savings).

UCBZeroWaste is a world-class, fully managed waste reduction program. We partner with major food, beverage and CPG clients to implement our proven methodology to reduce waste by focusing on the origin of waste (inside the building) as well as the processing of waste (outside the building). Our comprehensive programs include waste reduction, recycling, reuse, resale as well as de-packaging, digesting, composting and/or waste-to-energy (WTE). We manage all commodities, all vendors, all logistics, all invoicing and all reporting. All programs are proactively managed, real-time using UCB’s proprietary software called WATER: Waste Analytics & Tracking for Environmental Reporting.
