Recycling Education

As a continued effort to help ensure that less debris/refuse ends up in landfills, Fuchs Sanitation wants to encourage all of our customers to take active approaches to recycle the items that they are able. By doing this and passing on and educating our youth about recycling, we will be able to work for a better and cleaner future.

For our clients who are part of our recycling pickup (blue containers), below is some great information for you to know!

Please feel free to contact us or call us at 218-498-2875 if you have questions or to learn more.
