Republic Services’ comprehensive recycling process begins the moment we collect your materials at the curb. Our trucks safely collect and transport your recyclables to a recycling center. There, they will be processed utilizing sorting equipment – such as disk screens, magnets and optical sorters that can identify and separate different types of paper, metals and plastics. Sorted materials are then distributed to mills and manufacturers worldwide for re-manufacturing.
When it comes to recycling, it’s smart to work with an expert. We have more than 20 years of experience developing cost-effective, user-friendly recycling solutions to help minimize the amount of sorting our customers have to do. As a result, more people are recycling and more of our planet’s precious resources are being conserved
In all, we recycle more than 3 million tons of materials each year—that’s nearly 200 pounds per second! The paper and cardboard we recycle annually is enough to save 41 million trees. That’s the power of recycling with Republic Services.
Recycling – Good for our planet
. Good for communities
. And it all starts with you.
