Employee Recycling


Are mixed paper and cardboard collected separately where you work?

man at computerIf not, they should be. All nonresidential properties (i.e., businesses, schools, institutions), regardless of their size, are required to recycle these materials.

Other recycling requirements may also apply. It is the responsibility of your property owner or manager to make a determination.  To do so, they must answer these questions:

  • Does this single location, complex or institution produce more than 100 tons of solid waste annually?
  • Does this property have an average annual occupancy of 200 persons or more?

If the answer to either of these questions is 'yes,' then your property owner or management firm must also provide for the recycling of one principal recyclable material. (If county staff determines that the principal recyclable material is cardboard and/or paper, no additional recycling is required.)
