As the name implies, this is a service where private citizens will contract with a private recycling provider(s) to collect and transport recycled goods to a commercial recycling center. All collections will take place on private property, and as such, will not utilize the blue bins that citizens are accustomed to. Pricing will be as agreed upon by the subscriber and service provider, much like a cable TV subscription.
If you choose to subscribe, your first step is to contact the vendor of your choice to learn about their particular system. They will provide instructions and resources to allow for the collection of recyclables in accordance with their program (e.g., Recyclops provides customers with bags to place recyclables in, and Recyclops staff collect the bags from your property on your collection day.) Please note that recycling collection schedules will be determined by your subscription provider of choice, and may not align with your City-scheduled trash collection day.
Current subscription-based recycling providers include:
