Commercial Recycling

Looking to recycle at your office or business? Commercial recycling collection services through the Department of Solid Waste are not available at this time. Businesses, including multi-family units interested in recycling may reach out to a private company of their choice to contract recycling services.

Waste Reduction Tips

  • Double side photocopies. Not only does it save paper, but it also reduces mailing costs and condenses filing spaces.

  • Buy recycled products. Look for products with recycled content and packaging.

  • Place old office papers in a box marked "recycle" if you don't have an individual recycling bin for your desk. Transfer those papers to the central recycling bin at the end of the day.

  • Proof documents on your computer before printing.

  • Share journals, magazines, newsletters and newspapers rather than having several copies. This will also reduce your subscription costs!

  • Use coffee mugs instead of Styrofoam or paper cups.

  • Create "scratch paper" and memo pads from old stationary.

  • Remove obsolete names from your mailing lists regularly. It will save you the cost of printing and mailing unnecessary publications and letters.
