Recycling services for tenant agencies in the Capitol Mall.

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

How the recycling program works:

Blue recycling barrels are located throughout Capitol Mall common areas. These barrels are consolidated into outside bins by custodial staff, and Republic Recycling empties the bins. This program is part of the City of Boise recycling program and all guidelines pertaining to what can and cannot be placed into blue recycling bins are defined by the City of Boise program guidelines.

NOTE: You are responsible for emptying small individual office bins into the large collection barrels in common areas. Custodial staff do not collect individual bins.

What can be recycled:
