Curbside Recycling

Recycling Made Easy

Type in your address to sign up for reminders for trash and recycling collection. Use the Waste Wizard to search items to see where to properly dispose of them.

Overview

Recyclables are collected every week. Recycling is single-stream and fully automated. Meaning, only materials placed inside your cart will be collected. There is no need to sort or separate, as all materials will be sorted at the processing plant.

COLLECTION INFORMATION

Place your recycling cart curbside at the curb by 7 a.m. on your collection day with the wheels and handles away from the street. Recycling carts should be at least three feet away from trash barrels and other objects.

On weeks with a holiday, there will be no trash or recycling pickup on the day of the holiday. Your trash and recycling will be picked up the next day, and everyone else whose collection day follows the holiday will have their refuse picked up one day later than usual. Reference the 2021 Holiday Schedule here.

What can I recycle?

The recycling market is constantly changing; therefore, items accepted in your curbside recycling cart are subject to change. Not all items with a recycling symbol are accepted in your curbside bin.
