The Bermuda Government just opened a brand new recycling centre to deal with the island's T.A.G. material and for the residential sector they have a blue bag curbside collection available.

Government is encouraging businesses to become a Recycle Bermuda Business Partner. This campaign was launched in May 2007 and encourages businesses to implement recycling at work as well as encouraging staff members to recycle at home.
 
With regard to paper, some businesses are shredding it and giving it to local business that use it for animal bedding. However, demand for this may be limited.

There are other ways that you can get involved with recycling on island as well. Government also has a "special" waste programme which will provide businesses and homes with a battery bucket for later collection when it is full.  Household batteries are sent abroad for recycling. This section also processes florescent lights and sends them abroad for recycling. Companies need to drop fluorescent lights off to the Tyne's Bay Public Drop-Off which is open to cars and light vans seven days a week from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. If you need to deliver them in a bigger vehicle then they go to the Marsh Folly facility.
