Why does my business have to pay for recycling when it is picked up from my house for free?

Residential recycling collection is not free; it is funded through tax dollars or municipal utility bills. Most municipalities do not offer similar services for businesses. This allows each company to determine their individual recycling needs with a private waste collection company. Hiring a recycling company may even reduce the cost of your business's garbage disposal.

Phone the RCBC Recycling Hotline for companies that provide business recycling services.
