Recycling Containers Vendor List

Having a place to put stuff in both your home and office makes recycling easy.

This page lists manufacturers of paper and dry waste collection receptacles for recycling. Some of these companies carry organic waste containers and other equipment as noted. Visit our organics webpages, About Composting Bins and Worm and Worm Bin Suppliers for additional composting bin information. To add to this list, or to make modifications, contact the staff listed at the bottom of this page.

If you are considering buying recycle bins for your company or organization, please note that some companies that pick up recyclable material might also provide indoor and outdoor bins. Services provided throughout the state vary. Check with recycling vendors in your area before you buy bins for your company or organization.

As with most things you buy, please inquire about recycled content. The more recycled content the better, and postconsumer content is preferred to postmanufacture content.
