The SWA will provide free recycling containers for the collection of office paper, making the process easier! The containers come in two sizes - desk sides which are approximately the size of an under the desk wastebasket, and central containers which are tall containers designed for common areas or copy rooms. Call the SWA at 1-866-639-2467 and one of the SWA field representatives will deliver the containers to your office for free of charge. This program is for office paper and corrugated cardboard only and does not include any glass, plastic, or aluminum. If you are interested in recycling these items, please contact SWA at (561) 547-4000 or visit their website for more information.

For business recycling they charge businesses $25 a month for a 95 gallon cart to be picked up once a week. They recycle all material including paper glass, cardboard, plastic and aluminum. They may be contacted at (951) 974-7500.
