What do the bin/dumpster colors mean?

Posted by:

Anne Arundel County residences have yellow recycle bins at home. The City of Annapolis uses blue recycle bins. For inside the schools, AACPS uses many different colors including blue, yellow and white. The trash bins are usually black, gray or brown. AACPS understands that this can be confusing. As a result, the AACPS warehouse is slowing cycling through the older bins and replacing them with a standardized color. Until then it is up to the school to determine which color bins are best for recycling.

The larger dumpsters located outside the schools also vary in color. Republic Services, Inc. refuse dumpsters are blue with black lids and recycle dumpsters are blue with light blue lids.
