  • Commercial Recycling Service

    The Commercial Recycling Program incorporates “mixed recycling” processing which allows businesses to recycle more not having to worry about the expense sorting materials or what can and cannot be recycled. We can recycle more as a community and you can promote recycling as a part of your business as a community leader; we hope you participate in the City’s commercial recycling program.

    For high-volume commercial recycling customers  4, 6 and 8 cubic yard mixed recycling dumpsters are available. Please contact our office for information on current fees.

    Recycling conserves landfill space and energy, and preserves natural resources. Recycling also allows small business owners an opportunity to save money through separating recyclable items from your waste stream decreasing the volume and weight of your waste, which in turn could reduce your solid waste collection costs.

    Interested in promoting recycling? You may email or call 863.834.8774 to speak with our staff.
