Commercial Recycling

Although recycling is not a free service, it can still save your business money. Starting a workplace recycling program is not difficult and the City is ready to help you get started by providing a free waste audit. Staff will meet with you to customize a recycling program to fit your companies' needs and budget.
If you are not recycling, you are throwing money away

To schedule a waste audit, contact the Environmental & Neighborhood Services department at solidwaste@sugarlandtx.gov.

If your company is not recycling, you are throwing money away!
