When is Recycling Picked up?
- Recycling is collected every other week on your assigned collection day.
- Please place your cart out by 7 am on your collection day.
- Put your recycling in the recycling container, which has a yellow lid.
What if my recycling doesn't fit in the bin?
We don't pick up items outside of the container.
If you have items that will not fit in your cart, please consider using our fee-based special collection service, take the items to the Drop Off Center, or hold them for your next pick-up.
Additional and replacement carts are available for residents.
Where do I put my recycling bin?
The best place to put your cart is in your driveway apron if you have a driveway, or a few feet from your garage if you're in an alley way. This gives the mechanical arm of the truck enough room to safely pick up your cart.
If your cart was not set out or inaccessible when our trucks arrived for collection, we can make a return trip for a fee.
You can recycle a lot of different things. We accept plastics #1 #2 & #5 along with; paper, glass, cardboard, aluminum cans, and much more. Learn what you can recycle. As a reminder, don't recycle it until it's clean!
Holiday Waste and Recycling
Real trees that are clear of wrappings, wire, metal, nails and tree stands can be placed at the curb on regular collection days and will be chipped into mulch. Do not put trees in alleys. This is available the entire month of January. Learn what holiday items are easily recyclable.
