Universal Recycling Symbols

The State of Vermont developed a set of standardized symbols for use in promoting the primary materials management streams available under the Universal Recycling law: trash, recycling, food scrap collection, and food donation.

Businesses, haulers, solid waste management entities, parks, schools, and residents are encouraged to download and use the symbols. Great uses include:

  • Print mini-stickers for outreach events (kids love 'em!) or client mailings
  • Print larger stickers to use for labeling trash, recycling, and food scrap totes at home or at your business
  • Add a symbol to the side of your commercial hauling trucks
  • Download files to add the symbols to mailings, handouts, announcements, flyers, and more...

If you are a Vermont resident and wish to use symbol stickers at home or for a community project, consult with your solid waste management entity about ordering.

PNG This image type generally allows for more manipulation of the image. For instance, you can resize it more successfully than a .jpg format; you can also make part of it ‘transparent’ like a transparent GIF image type. Use PNG for making print graphics or for the web, and for use in projects where the image will be needed in multiple versions.
PNG-ZIP "Zip" is a special name for a compressed file. Use the .zip option to download the image directly to your computer. 
JPG A good option for the web, as it is formally recognized by all browsers. JPG images do not respond well to frequent re-sizing and editing, so be mindful of how much the image will be manipulated. These are larger images that will do well on large posters and signs. 
JPG-ZIP "Zip" is a special name for a compressed file. Use the .zip option to download the image directly to your computer. 
PDF Portable Document Format (PDF) are single documents that can be viewed or printed easily on all computer types with Adobe Reader (available for free download here). They are stand-alone documents that cannot be embedded in common programs like Microsoft Word, Excel, PPT, basic paint applications, etc. PDFs are a good option for sign-making and printing.
