About One Big Bin


One Big Bin is recycling and disposal made easy where you live, work and play. It allows Placer County residents and visitors to easily and conveniently recycle – anywhere and everywhere in the county – allowing everyone to participate in recycling. One Big Bin also makes it easy for us – you toss, we sort – which means we are able to easily remove recyclable materials based on market demand and you don’t have to worry about what goes into which bin, which can often change as recycling markets fluctuate. One Big Bin also means fewer bins to pick up so there are fewer trucks on the road.
