  • Reminders, and training. Bellevue Utilities conducts staff presentations for local businesses.
  • Check recycling containers inside and outside the building to make sure recycling ends up in the right containers.
  • Purchase recycled content products where possible.
  • Check with custodial staff to confirm they know and understand the recycling collection plan.
  • Collect and recycle at least one of the following materials (not accepted in the commingled recycling container): Styrofoam, ink cartridges, batteries, or cell phones.

Take The Refresh Recycling Pledge

We, [NAME_HERE] will join a growing number of Bellevue businesses by pledging to:

  • Review how we currently collect recycling in our buildings (Are there enough recycling containers in the right places?)
  • Make sure employees know what goes where (signage or reminders?)
  • Help make sure recycling is ending up in the right dumpster (janitorial staff trained?)
  • Purchase recycled–content products when possible (paper or other products?)

Bonus: Our business will set up a process to collect and recycle at least one of the more challenging materials (which aren’t accepted in the regular recycling bin)

  • Styrofoam packaging or peanuts
  • Ink Cartridges
  • Batteries
  • Cell Phones
  • Electronics
  • Food waste (it's free)
  • Fluorescent Lights (twisty bulbs and tubes)
  • Carpet (during remodels)
