The term "biodegradable" has been used over the past few years, to describe plastics or packaging that could potentially be metabolized by microorganisms in nature, with complete breakdown to CO2/Methane, water and biomass. However, there is significant confusion and controversy surrounding biodegradable plastics since many suppliers have used the term to loosely describe their material/packaging without specifying the conditions under which the material would degrade in nature. For instance, some plastics (like PLA) will only degrade under industrial composting conditions, while some others (like PHA) can break down under a wider range of conditions and environments (industrial, backyard, marine). Given this widespread confusion and the misuse of the "biodegradable" term, many global government and industry organizations have issued guidelines to restrict or eliminate the unqualified use of biodegradable as a descriptor of plastics or packaging. These include the European Commission guidelines (European Plastics Strategy) and the Federal Trade Commission Green Guides in the US.
In line with such guidelines, Ubuntoo's recommends that companies providing biodegradable materials, products or packaging:
1.Avoid unqualified use of the term "biodegradable" to describe their products
2.Any claim of biodegradability should be accompanied by a description of specific conditions and environments under which the material or product will undergo degradation in nature
3.It is strongly recommended that companies provide globally accepted certifications or testing for various biodegradability claims (such as the BPA certification for industrial composting)
Further in line with the position articulated by the European Commission as well as major CPG companies, Ubuntoo recommends that "biodegradable" plastics should not be considered a solution for littering (or worse a license to litter). Appropriate collection and end-of-life solutions (such as industrial composting or home composting) need to be put into place to avoid biodegradable plastics ending up as litter in the environment.

Dumpster Market is the brainchild of Laurel Mountain Partners, a group who has bought, sold, grown and managed over 100 companies in the waste industry. The group also started Liberty Tire Recycling, North America’s largest tire recycling company. The company looked at the way brokers use the internet to pair customers who need a dumpster with hauling companies who can provide one. To make this type of purchase more efficient for both parties involved in an online dumpster rental, the company started the marketplace dumpstermarket.com, which began in 2018. After extensive consultation, they created the software for haulers, which helps ensure that they get only the orders that they want, that the orders they get are already paid, and that they have all the tools they need to carry out and process that order.
The various services offered by the Dumpster Market: Residential Dumpster Rental; Junk Removal-Roll off Dumpster and Container Rental; Roofing Dumpster Rental; Concrete Dumpster Rental. Since the beginning of 2018, they’ve processed hundreds of orders with great feedback from both haulers and customers. Dumpster Market operates in about 14 cities across the USA, and is in full expansion.
The founder is Garret McNeill, and the company headquarter is based in Greater Boston Area. The company has good reviews at Yelp and Trust Pilot, and is covered by many blogs.
