Frequently Asked Questions
Conex operates in multiple markets, and each is slightly different. In general we accept; newspapers, office paper, magazines, phone books, clean paper mail, most types of plastics (types 1-7; water bottles, milk jugs, etc.), aluminum, soup cans, and tin metal.
We do NOT accept: polystyrene or styrofoam, egg cartons, styrofoam food trays, plastic grocery bags, rubber gloves, light bulbs, drinkware, motor oil containers, pesticide containers, paint cans, electronic devices or clothing.
No, clients do not have to separate materials. We provide single-stream recycling.
We offer two container sizes: 95-gallon containers and 3-yard bins. The dimensions of the 95-gallon bin are: 46" height x 29" width x 33" depth.
Conex Recycling operates on a monthly basis. Our commitment to customer satisfaction allows us to keep clients without a contract. We want the program to work for you. If the program is not right for your property, please provide us with a 30-day notice that you would like to cancel and we will pick up our containers. We are ready to enter into contractual agreements when requested.
We provide service pickups per month for a small, predictable fee, depending on your needs. Prices vary according to the number of containers and frequency of collection. This fee is typically made up for in the overall cost savings associated with the reduction in waste services. Less garbage, lower garbage bills, and more savings are enjoyed by your company.
The number of containers you need depends on the population density of each location. We use a ratio formula to determine the amount of containers needed and recommended on-site locations. We provide a free on-site survey that will determine your needs in an attempt to provide the very best service for you.
Every scenario is different and depends on the participation of the parties involved. We provide customers with a scheduled pickup day. We will evaluate and adjust the schedule for each property as needed and provide timely service, usually within 24 hours, in case of high usage overflow. This is included in the monthly service.
With the service that we provide, every pound that goes into our containers is a pound that does not go into your dumpsters or compactors. Companies typically pay a fee for the removal or “pulling” of waste containers, and a fee for the amount of tons that must be disposed of. Reducing the weight in waste reduces the amount you pay for waste disposal and extra charges, including fuel, delivery surcharges, and pull fees.
We provide the customer with a quarterly report, breaking down the material recycled by weight. This allows clients to track their positive influence on the environment, and further negotiate their waste contract.
Simply contact our office and your containers will be emptied on the next business day. If this continues to occur, we can adjust the service by adding more containers or increasing the frequency of pickups.
