What Kind of Recycling Customer Are You?

Learn What Type of Recycling Customer You Are

R & R Recycling asks, “What kind of recycling customer are you?” This question may catch you off-guard. What exactly do we mean? Well, there are different ways to recycle at our facility. You may need to drive to the shop to drop off items, or you could use a roll-off container that we pick up and drop off. It’s good to know which service you need to help with your recycling and disposal needs.

There are a few different types of recyclers out there that require different things. Some homeowners use small bags or bins to recycle bottles. Other commercial customers may require large containers to hold all of their items. Figuring out which type of customer you are will change the type of service you request from R & R Recycling.

This month, we’re going to describe a few types of the customers we have. This can help you to better understand what to expect when you recycle with us.

Residential Customers May Not Have As Much as They Think

When you think of recycling bins, you may just picture the tiny blue bins that sit in your kitchen. Keep in mind that R & R Recycling does not come through to pick those up. Our smallest container is a 20-yard container, and it takes up 10,000 pounds or more to fill one. If you’re not recycling this much metal, you will need to bring your metal to our shop. We accept various metals, which we’ll get into later.

Residential living facilities, like nursing homes or assisted living, may benefit from containers. Those who go through a lot of aluminum cans, batteries, and other non-ferrous metals may benefit from a container. Speak with our staff today to see if a container is right for you.

Commercial Customers Should Recycle, Too

Our commercial customers should know what kind of recycling customer they are, too. We offer a variety of container services to help your business move smoothly. We work with auto repair companies, construction companies, manufacturers, and more to make recycling easier.
