PHASE Recycling


Did you know that every year we produce enough plastic film in this country to shrink-wrap Texas? Or that Americans discard 38 billion plastic water bottles every year? While plastic offers the advantages of being flexible and lightweight, it also consumes fossil resources for its manufacture and contributes waste in our environment.

We Accept All Plastic!


Make Sure It's Clean!

Although it is not necessary, PHASE Recycling would appreciate your help in rinsing your recyclables beforehand!

Paper and Cardboard

More and more Americans are recycling paper. Everyday you are probably using paper that has been recycled.

  • Corrugated Cardboard

    Americans are doing great at recycling corrugated boxes, but we can do even better.

  • Magazines

    Did you know it's perfectly fine to recycle magazines, catalogs, and other "glossy" publications?

  • Office Paper

  •  Almost all of your daily pound and a half of office waste paper can be recycled!

  • Newspapers

  • Did you know the newspaper you read today can be recycled up to seven times?


  • Think of breakfast cereal boxes and you think of paperboard.  Paperboard is now being used for many other kinds of packaging, and it all can be recycled.

  • Paper Cardboard Dairy and Juice Cartons

    Also called "gable-top cartons," your paper mild and juice cartons can be recycled.

  • Unsolicited Direct Mail

    You may think of it as "junk mail," We think of it as recyclable paper! 

  • Phone Books

    When new phone books and business directories arrive,are you recycling your old ones?


When you think of empty soda and food cans, do you think natural resource? Well they are! The scrap value of the 36 billion aluminum cans Americans discarded in one year alone was about $600 million. Apart from the economic impact, the environmental savings of recycling metal are enormous.

Aluminum Cans

  • On average, Americans drink one beverage from an aluminum can every day. But we recycle just over 50% of the cans we use.  Let's get together and make a difference - recycle!

  • Aluminum Foil and Bakeware

    During World War II, Americans saved aluminum foil and even peeled off the silver wrapping from chewing gum wrappers to contribute to the war effort.

  • Soup Cans, Vegetable Cans, Coffee Cans, etc.

  • People call them "tin cans," but the containers your green beans come in are mostly made of steel.


Glass is recyclable.

  • Clear (Flint) Glass

    About 61% of glass containers produced in the USA are clear.

  • Brown (Amber) Glass

    About 31% of glass containers produced in the USA are brown.

  • Green (Emerald) Glass

    About 7% of glass containers produced in the USA are green.

  • More About Recycling Glass

    Did you know a glass bottle can take up to a million years to decompose?
