First, it’s good for the environment. Reducing environmental impact is a core value of our residents [and your customers]. Additionally, the Media Borough ordinance has required businesses to recycle since 1987. (Borough Code 241-37)
Conversations with trash haulers indicate that adding recycling should not add much to your bill. If your hauler wants to significantly increase your bill to add recycling don't be shy about negotiating the price - or find another hauler - or partner with other businesses.
Yes. That is the law. It will not take much to include recycling in your operating procedures.
Post the list where it can be easily seen. Provide a recycling bin next to each trash bin. Make employees aware of the recycling requirements. Please view the list on the Media Borough Business Recycling Poster (PDF).
Other businesses in Media have found that it takes only a little effort to meet the requirements of Media Borough’s recycling ordinance.
Make copies of the Media Borough Business Recycling Poster (PDF), give it to each employee, and post them in each office. Provide a labeled recycling bin of equal size next to each waste basket in your office. Contact your trash hauler to add recycling pick-up.
Other businesses have made arrangements to share a dumpster. Many hauler trucks are equipped to work with 96-gallon Toters - large, lidded plastic bins on wheels. They can squeeze into small spaces and larger businesses can use two or three.
All haulers operating in Media are required to provide recycling for all of their Media clients.
