Multi-Lingual Recycling Guidelines

In order to better serve all of our customers we offer our recycling posters and guidelines in 5 different languages in addition to English. We strive to provide the most accurate and up-to-date information we can to our customers. The posters below offer valuable information about garbage, organics, recycling, expanded recycling, call for pick-up and hazardous waste guidelines.

Every year, Americans recycle more than 87 million tons. Unfortunately, not everything placed in a recycle bin is ready to be recycled. Sometimes, perfectly good items (like paper) are ruined because other items are wet or soiled. Contaminated recycling hurts the environment. What can you do? Remember: Empty, Clean, Dry

Empty, Clean, Dry
