Do I have to buy an official recycling bin to collect recyclable material inside my business?
No. A simple cardboard box can work perfectly for years. ACC can provide a recycling sticker to identify it as a recycling container, and if it gets mangled, you can always recycle the box. In fact, copier paper boxes are ideal recycling bins; you can even cut a hole in the lid and have a child decorate it.
