Business and Institutions
The operator of every business establishment located within the City of Pittsburgh must establish a program to recycle the following items:
- High grade office paper
- Plastic bottles
- Corrugated cardboard
- Aluminum cans
- Leaf waste
Establishments are also encouraged to recycle old newspaper and mixed paper.
Establishments should contract a private hauler to collect and deliver the recyclables directly to a processor.

Your recycling not only helps to recover valuable resources and save energy, but the tonnage reported by private haulers, businesses and institutions also enable the city to attract more funding from the State.
If a private hauler is used, then the hauler can provide the tonnage report to the City on behalf of his clients.
