Memo to Philly businesses: Recycling is easy!

Posted: September 06, 2011

ALL BUSINESSES in Philadelphia must file a recycling plan with the Streets Department's Recycling Office.

Here's what you do:

1. Tell your private hauler that you want to recycle. Ask about rebates, since they can make money off your materials.

2. Go to secure.phila. gov/streets/commrecycling/.

3. Fill in basic location and contact information, your account number from the Office of Property Assessment, the name of the private hauler you use and a list of all materials that you plan to recycle.

4. Post your plan in an easily seen location within the business. It also must be reviewed with all employees so that they know how and what to recycle.

5. Recycle.

Questions? Call the Recycling Office at 215-686-5444.
