Recycling Equipment Resources and Signs

Recycling bins can be ordered through the same company your school or business is contracted with for janitorial or office supplies.  A small number of bins can be purchased through local stores such as Home Depot, Lowe’s, Office Max, or Staples.

Labels for Recycle Bins

  1. Make you own large sign to post above the recycling bin. Post a smaller sign on the bin.
  2. Print examples and photos from  http://apps.co.marion.or.us/imagegallery/
  3. For proper bin signage, you can request signs from your recycling vendor: Kimble, Republic, Rumpke, Waste Management. Contact your sales rep for details.
  4. Purchase low cost signs for bins at www.recycleacrossamerica.org or at www.cleanriver.com
