Recycling Tips
  • Inside the building:  Always place recycling and trash receptacles together so it is convenient to recycle.  Apply easy to understand labels on all trash and recycling receptacles as this will increase recycling. 
  • Confirm the person(s) taking out the building's waste are placing the recyclable items in the proper dumpster. 
  • Should you choose to bag recyclables you place into the dumpster, please use clear or transparent bags and leave open - do not tie or seal.  If you use Kraft/paper bags, do not staple or tape shut.
  • All items should be loose and empty.  Do not place smaller items inside of larger containers.
  • Your recycling dumpster will not be picked up if it contains trash, yard waste or prohibited items.
  • If you are unsure if something is recyclable, please call our Customer Service Team at (608) 257-4285.
