Recycling Depot

Whether you’re a homeowner, a business owner or a contractor, you may have to deal with the bulk of waste generated at your place. Instead of simply discarding excess scrap metals, papers and plastic waste, why not make sure they’re recycled before disposal? Partner with D.B.L. Disposal Services and let us help you protect the environment through our recycling depot. With a mission to keep all the mid-island clean, we encourage you to give us the stuff you no longer need or know what to do with. We even accept a wide range of construction materials, including drywall, roofing and metal.


For over six decades, we have been providing quality services such as building demolition, portable toilets and temporary fencing to our clients. We understand that unwanted materials can create needless clutter in your homes and offices. Whether you are doing some spring cleaning or a complete interior overhaul, we are here to manage all the unwanted waste that you don't need anymore.

We Deliver and Pick Up Bins

Are you just beginning your recycling program, or do you need a one-time service for a demolition or renovation project? Call us for professional bin services for your residential and commercial properties and take a step towards a green initiative. We offer swift services to ensure that the waste created due to renovation and refurbishment projects is promptly taken care of. We’ll drop off a disposal bin at your site in the size you need. You can put everything into one bin, and then we’ll come to pick it up. No need to pre-sort your materials since we take care of the sorting for you too at our recycling depot.


Unmanaged waste on construction sites can lead to substantial health and safety hazards. They can cause accidents and also cause environmental pollution. To help you keep your premises clean and smooth renovation work, we also provide collection options for large quantities of waste generated due to construction activities, repairs and restoration work. Our workers provide efficient and expedient services to clear all kinds of construction rubble to ensure the safety and health of your family and employees.


You would want an accurate estimate of what size bin will hold your recyclables without wasting space for efficiency and savings. The D.B.L. Disposal Services staff is happy to help you choose the right roll-off bin for your site and project. Call us with the details or refer to our chart of bin sizes.

Keeping the Mid-Island Community Green

Not only does recycling support sustainability but is also economically smart. We have all the equipment you need for cleaning up after your next event or project.


It is important to keep our vicinity clean and garbage-free to create a decent standard of living for our families. Also, to foster public health and safety, the need for an efficient waste management system is indispensable. It is also equally important that the waste goes through systematic processes of sorting. It can be difficult to sort waste materials into dry waste, wet waste, industrial waste, and organic waste at home. At D.B.L. Disposal Services, we carry out a comprehensive sorting process that separates the recyclable waste items from the non-recyclables.


Improper waste disposal can cause environmental pollution. It can also cause potential health hazards and other implications. Nowadays, most of the waste generated in urban homes and commercial facilities is non-biodegradable in nature. Without efficient and expedient disposal, it can cause water pollution, blockage of drains, and can also emit potentially hazardous fumes.


Whether you are land clearing in the spring and doing home renovations in the summer, or cleaning out your home or business any time of the year, we take:

  • Yard waste in spring and fall

  • Materials from construction sites

  • Batteries for recycling

  • Boxes and packing materials after moving

Benefits of Recycling

The phrase “ Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” is very prominent worldwide, and it is taught to every individual during their schooling in the hope of creating a pollution-free clean environment. We all know that recycling is a simple way in which we can contribute to making the world a better place to stay but do we practice that? Maybe not, not enough. But if we want to preserve the Earth for our future generations, we should look at the benefits of recycling other than simple trash removal.

  • Recycling helps protect the environment and wildlife: Manufacturing new raw materials through mining, quarrying, and logging creates substantial air and water pollution. But for construction, raw materials are essential. Recycling these raw materials from already discarded scrap and waste can save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which helps to tackle climate change.

  • Reduces pollution: We all know industries release a lot of waste like chemicals, plastics, and cans that contribute to water, air, and land pollution. Recycling these materials can help to reduce environmental pollution.

  • Conserves natural resources: The world’s natural resources are finite, and due to continued extraction and depletion of natural resources, we are affecting the suitability. Recycling paper, wood, plastic, metals and glass can help us preserve resources for our future generations.

  • Reduces exploitation of other communities: The continued need for raw materials has dispersed many communities from their native place and left them homeless. Recycling can bring down the constant need for raw materials, which will contribute to the replenishment of resources and save the homes of many people.

  • Saves energy: Products from recycled materials need less energy than making them from new raw materials.

  • Economical than a waste collection: The more you recycle, the less you dispose of it in a bin which saves a good amount of money. It is beneficial for households, businesses and local public services that need eco-friendly and cost-effective disposal of wastes.

The benefits of recycling are simple, but their impact is significant. This is why we recommend you dispose of your household or commercial waste at our recycling depot for a greener and cleaner environment.
