Recycle

Lower Your Impact

TransTrash is proud to provide recycling services.

This enables us to keep multiple tons of recyclables out of our landfills every year.

  • Cardboard is the number one recycled material. We have trucks dedicated to daily cardboard pick up routes, and we accept cardboard at our facility from the public.
  • Sorted office paper is an easily recyclable material when not contaminated with wet organic material. TransTrash also runs weekly routes for sorted office paper, and we accept it at our facility from the public.
  • Newspaper, when not contaminated, is another recyclable product that we accept at our facility from the public.
  • Single stream recycling allows both residential and commercial recyclers to place all recyclables into one bin, regardless of material type. This makes recycling easier for the consumer and increases participation throughout the community.
