# 3 - We Recycle More Than Glass

Since 2009, Houston has relied on Recycle4U for its recycling needs and we've customized our services and equipment to make recycling easy and efficient. Recycle4U is proud to be a local, woman owned business and we show our love for America by hiring U.S. Veterans!
Recycle4U is not only cheaper than our competitors, we also collect more glass per pick-up! Our custom trailer was built to transport large amounts of recyclables and if you need more space than the 28 gallons your set of 2 bins provide, we can accept up to 42 gallons per pick-up.
Recycle4U collects more than just glass bottles and jars. We also sell mail-in kits for recycling batteries, light bulbs, toner cartridges and medical waste. Plus, Recycle4U offers a FREE GIFT when you sign up so you can recycle your metal bottle caps and wine corks too!

 Hear from our Customers 
"Recycle4U picked up my glass for years and provided great, consistent service!
A few years ago my neighborhood began receiving curbside recycling services which included glass so I no longer needed their help and reluctantly discontinued our service.  Now that the City of Houston has removed glass from their curbside recycling program, I have renewed my service with Recycle4U.  Thank goodness Recycle4U is here to fill the gap and offer glass only curbside recycling collection services!"
