Commercial recycling collection is available to all businesses in the Washington Metropolitan Area. Businesses can choose from two convenient container styles, toter and container. Collection is offered (for most services) on a weekly, every other week, monthly or on-call basis.
Recycling has forever changed the way waste is managed. Many states and municipalities have mandatory recycling programs. These recycling efforts can require huge investments in manpower, equipment and facilities. The keys to successful recycling programs are education coupled with a keen sensitivity to the economic factors surrounding the entire recycling process. VHI, Inc. can evaluate your current and future recycling needs and create a program that complies with the ever-growing number of federal, state and local regulation.
Paper & Cardboard Recycling
