Thanks for Not Sharing
We ask that each residence recycle only those materials generated by their household. Sharing of the service with neighbors or family or bringing materials home from the office reduces our efficiency and puts unmanageable strain on our equipment and staff. Instead, have your neighbors, friends, and family sign up for individual service or ask them to utilize our Drop Off (google map) location. Thank you.
Participants may use any containers that suit their needs, making sure that those containers are in good repair and do not collect water. Brown paper grocery sacks and small to mid-sized packing type boxes make good recycling containers. Wheeled trash cans are also acceptable. Please make sure that your containers weigh no more than 40 pounds with material included, as we must lift these containers overhead to empty them into our trailer.
We may not be able to collect material in overweight or otherwise unmanageable containers. Please secure and contain your material in case of high winds.
Recycling Bins available for purchase
GJ CRI has red, open, 18 gal. UV resistant recycling bins available for $12.00 each. We do not require that you use our containers - paper sacks, laundry baskets, rubbermaid totes and boxes all work well. Just make sure your containers are not falling apart, weigh more than 40lbs. with recyclable material in them, and do not collect rainwater, leaves, garbage, etc.
Currently our commercial program is at capacity and we are unable to take any additional new accounts. Please continue to check back for possible openings.
Our commercial component evolved from the requests from our residential participants who wished to recycle at work. We work with you to determine the type, size, and number of containers and frequency of pick ups.
If your company is within city limits, we may be able to service your business through our commercial recycling program. You can also encourage recycling at your workplace by forming a "green team" and sharing the responsibility of bringing your workplace recyclables to the drop off.
