Is Your Broward County Agency Recycling?

Recycling at Broward County government agencies has never been easier since the County implemented an “all-in-one” system. Now all of your recyclables, including paper, plastic bottles, and aluminum and steel cans, can go into the blue recycling bins. If your agency is not recycling yet, what are you waiting for?

What’s that? You don’t have a recycling bin?

 

Solid Waste and Recycling Services has a Government Recycling Program that provides recycling bins to County agencies. We also offer workplace assessments to make recommendations and share best practices to ensure that every employee, agency, office and facility has what they need to create a sustainable recycling practice.

Contact the Government Offices Recycling Program coordinator at 954-474-1867 or send us an email at BCGovtRecycles@broward.org to request recycling bins* and/or a workplace assessment.

*Recycling bins are provided to supplement, not replace, regular waste bins. You must currently have a waste bin in order to receive a recycling bin.
