Trash and Recycling Labels
All businesses in Ramsey County and Washington County are eligible to receive free recycling, organics and trash labels from BizRecycling. Businesses can get up $5,000 in labels for free, no grant required.
Good labeling of recycling, organics and trash containers is essential to create a successful recycling program. Labels help make recycling easier for staff and customers. By providing simple visual cues, recycling, organics and trash are always properly separated.
BizRecycling labels are designed to withstand both high and freezing temperatures. Printed on sturdy material and backed with an industrial grade adhesive, the labels will not wear off as bins are emptied daily by staff.
Labels are available in English, Somali, Hmong and Spanish. Many of the labels are customized for different cultures. For example, images of Hmong food are pictured on the Hmong organics label.
