Place your recycling container with the lid opening toward the street or alley and place it at least four (4) feet from your garbage container.

Recycling is picked up every other week on your garbage day. Recycling and yard waste are collected on alternating weeks.

Residential customers who recycle curbside also may request a small blue bin for collection of glass and household batteries. This bin is to be placed next to your big blue recycling container for collection on your recycling day.

Please Call or Visit the Website for more information.
Please Rinse All Containers, Remove All caps/Lids and Flatten All Boxes to conserve space.
