Capitol Mall Recycling

Recycling services for tenant agencies in the Capitol Mall.



If recycling bins need serviced, please submit a Work Request Form.

Blue recycling bins are located throughout Capitol Mall common areas. These bins are serviced by custodial staff, and Allied Waste Service collects the consolidated recycling from central collection bins. The company processes approximately 60,000 tons of material each year - with approximately 1,000 tons coming from the Capitol Mall.

Please place ALL recyclables in the single bin. Allied Waste Service will separate the contents. This method is called mixed recycling, and it allows us to use just one bin for everything rather than needed separate bins for each type if recyclable item.

  • Paper
    • Cardboard boxes (PLEASE BREAK BOXES DOWN!)
    • Construction paper (w/o glitter & glue)
