Additional Containers

If you need additional containers, please contact our Recycling Crew (see contact information box above, to the right) and they will deliver needed containers on their scheduled stop and pick-up on the following scheduled stop. You may also contact our Recycling Crew if you need to schedule a pick-up and return, or just a pick-up, for these extra containers.

We are limited to the number of extra containers and so they are distributed on a first-come first-served basis.


Confidential shredding must be labeled, boxed and taped shut. Our staff will make every effort to follow the shredding pick-up schedule, but there may be unintentional misses or misses due to lack of coverage. If a shredding pick-up is missed, please let our Recycling Crew know and we will include it in the next scheduled stop.
