Our full-stream recycling program means we take recyclables others won’t.

Yes we take glass, cardboard, plastics, metal and paper. But unlike other haulers, Break it Down also accepts plastic films, packing peanuts and aseptic containers, as well as over-sized and bulky items where reuse or recycling is possible. 

No space? No problem. Our 50-gallon bins can be stored virtually anywhere on site, freeing up parking spaces and saving our clients thousands of dollars. Schedule as many pick-ups as you need, be it weekly or daily. We operate 7 days a week to accommodate your waste diversion needs.

Contact us and let Break it Down create a comprehensive, full-stream recycling service that is tailor-made to fit the needs of your business!

Some of our clients who are breakin’ it down

Break it Down was founded in 2009 by husband and wife duo Jeff Paine and Melanie MacFarlane.

What began as recognition that there were no composting services available for local businesses, has grown to include the most comprehensive recycling and composting service in town.
