Commercial CUSTOMER RECYCLING COURSE CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
COMMERCIAL RECYCLING COURSE THANK YOU for choosing Recycle4U as your recycling service provider! We are Houston’s premier commercial recycling pick-up service and our mission is to help Houston recycle! Recycle4U makes recycling easy, fun and effective!
COMMERCIAL RECYCLING COURSE LESS CONTAMINATION…THE BETTER Contamination is a huge problem for the recycling industry. When non-accepted items, multiple types of recyclables and recyclables that contain food/liquid are combined, the materials loose their value and end in landfills or they destroy large batches of recycling in the processing phase. Recycle4U is here to help you identify and eliminate contamination of recyclable materials! Remember - Rinse + Wash = Clean When In Doubt…Leave it Out!
