The City of Lowell provides weekly curbside recycling for any residential building with four units or fewer. Whenever a scheduled collection day falls on a holiday, that day’s collection and all remaining collections for the week will be delayed one day.

To obtain a recycling cart, please visit City Hall, the Department of Public Works or the Health Department.

Lowell now has single stream recycling. All recyclables may be placed in cart.

Please put paper items and yard waste in paper bags next to the bin.

Bulky waste and CRTs are accepted by appointment only. Please call (978) 649-7564 for an appointment.
