What you need to know

Commercial recycling is a bit different than recycling plastic bottles and metal cans. Businesses create a distinct type of waste, often made up of cardboard, plastic film, and even scrap metal. Though this waste often looks different than your recycling bin at home, many of these items can be recycled.

  • Cardboard/OCC

    The majority of commercial recycling is made up of discarded cardboard. Cardboard is not only a common packaging material, it’s also the easiest to recycle for rebates. It can be baled and stored inside or outside until it’s ready to be picked up.

  • Metal

    Discarded metals are typically thrown into an open-top dumpster, picked up by a truck, and taken to a scrap yard. Be sure you don’t confuse metal recycling with electronic waste, which needs to be handled separately.

  • Paper

    The environmental benefits of recycling paper are never ending. Because paper can be broken down and reused up to seven times, you help provide materials for more paper goods and manufacturers. Rubicon will take a close look at what types of paper you throw away, and in what volume, to design a paper recycling program that works best for you.

  • Plastic

    Plastic is used in just about everything, from water bottles to packing peanuts. When the price of the material exceeds to cost to process it, recycling plastic can be profitable. Rubicon keeps an eye on market values and works with local vendors to ensure you’ll get the best return on your discarded plastics.
