Republic Participates in Recycling Night at Cavaliers Game

January 27, 2020

With upwards of 40,000 listeners, Recycling Coordinator Lisa B. provided lots of good info about recycling during the halftime show at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse on January 2. She outlined the five main recyclables:

  • Paper
  • Cardboard
  • Plastic
  • Glass
  • Aluminum

Lisa also reminded listeners about our Recycling Simplified rules of thumb:

Know what to throw. There are three primary categories of recyclables: paper and cardboard, metal cans, and plastic bottles and jugs. With bottles and jugs, remember to keep the caps on.

Empty. Clean. Dry.® Don’t allow more than one teaspoon of liquid to remain in a recyclable container.

Don’t Bag it. Never bag or bundle your recyclables. Items should be placed in the container individually. Plastic bags are one of the biggest contaminants we see at our recycling facilities.

Joining Lisa at the event were Sales Rep Nathan C. and Operator Kyle H. Thank you to Lisa, Nathan and Kyle for representing Republic Services in the community and helping Cavs fans be better recyclers!
