Downtown Cardboard Recycling Program

The Metro Public Works downtown business recycling program provides a simple way for your business to start recycling.

If your business waste is collected by Metro, all you have to do is flatten your cardboard boxes and set them out separately from your trash. Metro refuse collectors will pick up your boxes at the same time as the rest of your waste and take the cardboard to a recycling facility, where it will be sorted, bailed, and sent off to be made into more cardboard.

If your refuse is not collected by Metro or if you have other items you want to recycle, you can contact a private recycling company to arrange for recycling services and pickup.
