Rent Do It Yourself (DIY) Bins for Recycling, Compost & Trash
Save money and the environment! These bins are easy to use and transport -- they break down to the size of a folding chair.
Rent a full Zero Waste Station with a recycling, compost, and trash bin, OR rent individual bins.
Each DIY bin rental includes one bag suitable for that bin.
For example, a green, certified compostable bag for the compost bin; a clear or blue bag for recycling; and, a black or white bag for the landfill.
Each bin rental is $5 and includes 1 bag per bin.
How to Rent Our DIY Zero Waste Station Bins
View this tutorial to ensure proper setup of the stations.
Pay for and pick up your rental bins at Eco-Cycle's CHaRM.
After your event, recycle and compost your materials in your curbside bins, or deliver them to CHaRM or your nearest recycling center.
Return the bins to the CHaRM.
Please note: Customers having lost or returned a damaged bin will be billed $50 per item (frame or lid).
How many bags do you need?
We recommend approximately one bin for every 25 people. Each bin rental includes 1 bag for that specific bin. Additional bags are available for purchase at Eco-Cycle's main office and can be paid for at the CHaRM window when the bins are picked up.
If you use you own bags...
The structure of the bins require that the bags be no smaller than 45-gallon to work properly. Do not use plastic bags for compost; use a green, BPI Certified Compostable bag (e.g. Bio-Bag). We recommend a clear bag for recyclables. Clear bags allow participants to see the recyclables and prevent contamination.
Collapsible recycling bins are made available by the generosity of the City of Boulder. The bins are manufactured by ClearStream Recycling.
Please place your order at least 48h in advance. Your order request is subject to bin availability.
If you do not receive a confirmation email with your invoice 48h before your pick-up date, please contact Eco-Cycle at 303-444-6634 or email Bill Germain at firstname.lastname@example.org.
