Roadside Cleanup Solutions for State DOTs
WasteZero helps State Departments of Transportation run their roadside cleanup programs more efficiently.

State Departments of Transportation (DOTs) across the nation conduct roadside litter removal programs.  However, they rarely recycle the material that is collected as part of these efforts.   Up to 60% of this material could be recovered and recycled with minimal effort.  Over time, this will save money, and it’s the right thing to do.

WasteZero provides a range of supplies and services to State DOTs for roadside cleanup programs.  We want to help DOTs collect and recycle as much material as possible.  We offer custom printed:

  • Trash Bags
  • Recycling Bags
  • Reversible, Dual Purpose Roadside Cleanup Bags

Reversible Bags for Roadside Cleanup

We pioneered the reversible trash / recycling bag for State DOTs.  Because one bag serves both purposes, participants only have to carry one bag, and DOTs only need to manage one bag inventory for cleanup programs, rather than two.

When collecting trash, simply have the orange side facing out.  When collecting recyclable materials, turn the bag inside out to have the blue side exposed.  Once bags are filled, just secure with the drawstring and leave in the location indicated by the collection coordinator.


Reversible bags were first used by the North Carolina DOT for its roadside cleanup programs. The orange side is for trash, and blue is for recyclables.

We offer a range of standard bags for roadside clean-up programs.

If you’re interested in customized, reversible bags for your roadside cleanup program, then please contact us directly.
