Commercial Recycling Services
Our recycling expertise helps you implement an effective facility-based collection and removal program. We offer single stream recycling and fully commingled recycling where recyclable materials can be mixed together. Commingling gives you the ability to remove a broad range of recyclable products from your waste stream without surrendering valuable office space. Or your materials can be sorted by commodity, depending on the available storage space at your location. Get started by contacting us today.
The Future of Recycling
In 2013, Action proudly announced its opening of the redesigned material recycling facility located in the Bronx. Within this new material recycling facility is an optical sorter. An optical sorter uses infrared technology to detect and separate all seven grades of plastics, white paper from mixed paper and cardboard from the rest. This allows Action to extract higher quality recyclables out of the waste stream, diverting them from the landfill. Our philosophy behind the purchase of this vast and innovate recycling center is to lead NYC into the future of recycling.
Our RedWave NIR/C is an optical sorting machine that recognizes and separates the materials and colors in a single step. Different kinds of materials, such as colored printed and non-printed cardboard, catalogues, newspapers, magazines, plastics, etc. can be identified by the RedWave NIR/C‘s near infrared technology.

Single-Stream Recycling Program & Guidelines
The ease and importance of single stream recycling
Single stream recycling is the technology that allows all recyclables to be placed into a single container for collection and processing, and are then sold as raw materials to create new items such as newspaper, office paper, cardboard, plastic bottles, even steel and aluminum cans.
This allows our customers to place all clean recyclable items in one container, without the need to separate plastic from paper from cardboard, and so on. Action will pick up these commingled recyclables and process them at our award-winning, advanced recycling center in the Bronx.
PLEASE make sure you DO NOT include any food waste or residual food waste with acceptable recycled items! All acceptable items MUST BE put into CLEAR plastic bags!
