*Glass In Single Stream:
As of November 2017: There have been changes to the Material Recovery Facilities ability to separate out and recycle glass from single-stream. When you put glass bottles and jars the curbside bin, 80 – 85% of them get recycled (most become bottles). We still encourages our customers to separate out the glass and use a drop off only locations because when separated into glass bins, 100% of the glass goes bottle to bottle, bypassing the MRF.

Dumpsters: we have as small as a 2 yard and large as an 8 yard available for single-stream recycling* as well as limited availability for cardboard, e-waste, and metal only recycle dumpsters.
Roll-offs*: GSI can provide the most variety for recycling options for customers who utilize a 15 yard, 20 or 30 yard roll-off. Recycle Materials include Wood, Metal, Cardboard*, Glass, Asphalt, Concrete, Single-stream* and more.
Balers: Balers minimize waste and and condense recyclable materials into easy to transport blocks. These are great for businesses who produce large amounts of cardboard and have space to store materials onsite.
Compactors: Compactors are used to reduce and compress large volumes of materials, reducing the overall number of pick ups needed. Compactors work well for cardboard only materials.
