What Determines the Cost of Recycling Services?

Although it can be tempting, it is not always in your best interest to go with the first cheap option that you find for recycling pickup. It is incredibly important to find out what is being offered and included in the recycling service package that you purchase to ensure that you are getting your money’s worth. Some of the different things that can affect how much recycling services cost include:


The location of your home or business is often a major factor that affects how much you will end up paying for recycling services. If a truck needs to drive a long way in order to collect your recycling, it will often end up costing more than if you are located along a commonly travelled route.

Size of Bin

The amount of recycling being hauled away will also affect how much your recycling services cost. If the bin at your home or business is quite large or you have multiple bins being emptied, it will be more expensive to enlist the help of a recycling company.

Scope of Services

Some recycling companies offer more than others, so it is important to look at what is being offered when determining cost. Make sure that your recycling company collects all of the different types of recycling that you will be generating, as not all materials will be accepted by most companies.
