Commercial Recycling

It's the Law

Commercial recycling is mandatory in State College and Bellefonte Boroughs, the surrounding Townships in the Centre Region as well as Benner & Spring Townships. A number of commercial collection sites are available throughout Centre County in addition to provisions at individual businesses.

  • Deposit the listed recyclable materials (un-bagged) in the specifically labeled blue container.

  • Find your business's recycling receptacle or the Drop-Off Recycling site nearest you.

  • If you have any questions, call the Recycling Hotline Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 238-6649.

It's Different

Though recycling at work is a lot like recycling at home, there are some differences. The biggest difference is in the kinds and quantity of materials.  

     Different businesses produce different waste streams.

  • Offices make lots of white copy and computer paper.

  • Retail stores generate loads of corrugated cardboard.

  • Eating establishments produce many cans and bottles.

  • Educational institutions generate a wide variety of materials, depending on where you are.

Those responsible for recycling, must carefully plan for the differences in various kinds of businesses and institutions. Receptacle size, placement, and labeling are especially important. Be sure to have recycling containers right next to trash containers. When given the choice, most people will do the right thing!
