Two types of recycling exist for the sake of this conversation. Of course there is organic waste recycling but varies greatly from these recycling standards. Firstly we have sorted or multi stream recycling. This type of recycling is sorted in to the different waste streams. Generally there is a different buyer for different materials. Since recycling is market based, each recycling district may have its own buyer for the many different streams that come into the facility. Secondly, unsorted recycling all goes into one bin and is sorted in a recycling processing plant. This latter recycling type is known as single stream recycling. You will see this with large companies or municipalities where sorting machinery does all the sorting mechanically.
Multi Stream Recycling Labels
Many times collection of recycling, either at a drop-off site or center requires items to be put in designated bins. Those containers get labeled with the name of the waste stream. We print the most popular waste streams out in bulk and stock them on our shelves. When you place an order, your order is pulled and shipped. Many customers contact us to print custom multi stream recycling labels for their company. Whether it is a different waste stream, they want illustrations or just want their contact information. If you require something different than you see here, please reach out to one of our customer service representatives.
Of course you can also find labels broken down into subcategories.
