Recycling Industry Accounting System

Accounting Solutions for the Recycling Industry

The recycling industry presents some unique challenges for accounting. Most accounting programs have difficulty with many concepts that are quite common to Recyclers. Some examples include – Transactions where the weight is in pounds, but the price is in GT or MT, buying in a down market where the cost of material is less than the freight charges, integration of freight expenses into the cost of material, or the “Reverse Retail” aspects of the business where people bring you goods and you give them money.
