Switching to efficient recycling means a greener future for everyone where reduce, reuse, and recycle are not just a hobby.
RECYCLING PROCESS MATTERS
Separated bins average 95%+ recycled rate; one bin cross-contaminates, sending at least 20% to a landfill anyway.

Stack ’em, Sort ’em, place ’em:
We’ll handle the rest!

We provide three bins for residential customers: plastic, paper, glass & metal. Cardboard can be laid flat or placed in a container of your choosing. You can also use your own bins if you wish.

GONE GREEN IS OUR PROMISE…
Our mission is a clean and green Montana. We believe the Last Best Place deserves our commitment to a responsible lifestyle. We keep our promise using the most efficient recycling method: Separated Bins.
01. How much are you actually recycling?
Our recycling method is cleaner. Over 95% of all your materials are recycled. Commingling often leads to vast contamination. In reality at least 20% of your commingled recycling ends up in a landfill anyway. We guarantee a recycled product.
02. Our community is our choice
We know what it means to work with our community. We believe the only way to ensure a green Montana is to be transparent about our recycling. We standby the separated recycling because we know the difference it makes.
03. We recycle glass
Other companies don't take glass because of the commingled process. We DO. All our glass is recycled and reused in products in the U.S.A., and all brewery bottles are reused here in Montana! Bayern Brewer sanitizes the bottles so they can become vessels for tasty beverages again.
04. We make separated recycling easy
Our bins are labeled and stack comfortably in the same space as a commingled can. Simply lay them in a line at your curb with your flattened cardboard on pickup day, and we’ll do the rest!
