Recycling at Work
Free Recycling Service
Recology South Valley provides free recycling service to businesses in the City of Morgan Hill. Businesses can receive mixed paper, beverage container, and/or corrugated cardboard recycling services based on their needs.
Recology will provide rolling carts (with sticker labels) and/or dumpsters for the materials. Lockable containers are available. Business recycling is picked up weekly, but businesses may get up to 3 pick-ups per week, if needed.
Your business may be able to reduce its garbage bill and save resources by participating in our recycling program. Call Recology at 408-842-3358 to request recycling service or for more information.
