Recycling at UB is All In One. This means you can place all recyclable materials, including paper, boxes, bottles, cans and containers in the same receptacle; no sorting required. Just be sure to always keep trash out of our recycling containers.
The key to a successful recycling program is to eliminate contamination.
Just because an item has the ability to be recycled, does not mean it is accepted in UB's recycling bins. Recycling bins are contaminated when an item, not listed as accepted in UB's recycling program, is placed in a recycling container. Please ensure food and beverage containers are empty, and rinsed or wiped clean. If you are unsure if an item is accepted in UB's recycling bins, please place the item in the trash.
*Update* March 2019
Due to plastic scrap import bans in China UB's recycling processor Modern Disposal Service has adjusted the plastic commodities which can be diverted for recycling.
