Commercial Recycling

Blue-Container The City of Rochester is making recycling easier and more convenient with our expanded mixed recycling program. Now mixed recycling means paper can be mixed with metal, glass and plastic so all recyclable materials can be placed in one container.

Recycling containers are provided and serviced for FREE!

One of the best ways to cut the cost of your refuse bill is to recycle! When you actively recycle, you can potentially cut the amount of trash in your refuse stream by 60%. By recycling cardboard, office paper, magazines, newspapers, etc., you are reducing the amount of trash you must pay to be removed from your site, which can often allow you to choose a smaller refuse container and pay less accordingly.

Customized collection scheduling (daily, weekly, bi-weekly or on-call services) is available to fit your needs.

What containers can be utilized for recycling?

Wheeled containers with lids are provided to recycling customers. All recyclable materials can be placed in the new container, without the need to sort. Dumpsters are available for businesses with a large volume of cardboard waste.
