ABC Disposal will work with your business to form a customized recycling program that fits your commercial or industrial recycling needs. Our skilled professionals will help you create a regular and proper recycling plan that could help to lower your waste costs, and enhance your business image with your customers.

We provide our commercial business customers with a container for cardboard recycling. Commercial front load containers, range in size from 2 yards to 8 yards and when necessary, commercial rear load containers ranging in size from 2 yards to 6 yards. Commercial cardboard service is provided Monday - Friday, route specific. For larger industrial customers, we provide stationary compactors and bailers.

Commercial commingle recycling service is provided for those customers that have a little bit of everything. Items to be recycled include plastic bottles, cans, office paper, newspaper, catalogs, chip board and cardboard.

Providing our customers with containers for cardboard and commingling recycling allows them to do their part in preserving the earth's natural resources as well position themselves in a positive light with their employees and customers.

RESIDENTIAL RECYCLING

ABC Disposal's curbside recycling services make our residential service convenient for you. We offer dependable residential garbage pickup to the Cedar Rapids Iowa City corridor communities we serve. By offering 35-gallon, 65-gallon and 96-gallon trash cans on wheels, ABC Disposal guarantees that we have the right service for you. From a special residential garbage pickup to scheduled weekly collection, our professional and friendly drivers can be counted on to pick up your household waste on time.

Please do not park vehicles in front of containers due for pickup. Place the container on either side of the driveway or at the edge of the curb. Allow six feet of clearance from the container from any obstructions such as streetlights, cars, trees, electrical poles, etc. and place the bins three feet from each other. Be sure the lids to the bins are placed towards the street for proper removal.
