Recycling services

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that 70% of the waste created in the United States is recyclable, meanwhile only about 30% is actually recycled. At Metropolitan Recycling, we aim to change that within the NYC metropolitan area. We collect plastic containers, glass containers, paper and cardboard products, and metal (tin, aluminum, steel) cans. Not only does recycling save landfill space, but it also uses less energy than new manufacturing and maintains our reserves of certain valuable resources such as aluminum and steel.


Waste Removal

We offer multiple non-hazardous waste removal options for our commercial and institutional customers. We’ll work with you in deciding the size of container(s) needed and the frequency of pick-ups to best suit your needs. Whether you’re looking for a large container for temporary service at a construction or cleanup site, or you’re looking for a permanent dumpster for regularly scheduled pickups, we can provide you with a reliable and cost effective solution for your waste removal needs.


Organic Recycling

The BIO-EZ food waste disposal system transforms organic waste into nutrient-rich water that can be easily flushed into the sewer system. The BIO-EZ can breakdown all food products including meat, dairy, fruits and vegetables, shells, bones, and baked goods, as well as light paper products such as paper towels, napkins, coffee filters, and paper egg cartons. When the food waste is added to the machine, it is chopped, mixed, and aerated, then the “Bio-Helper” microbe formula is added. The microorganisms then digest the food waste and convert it to water which can be flushed into the sewer system.


Roll Off Services

Roll-off dumpsters are large rectangular containers that are commonly used on construction and cleanup sites. They’re used for everything from common, non-hazardous waste to building material scraps and demolition debris. We have several different size containers available. We’ll work with you to determine the pickup and drop-off schedule, whether you need daily pickups or a longer term rental, we can work with you.
