By recycling everyday items, tons of raw materials, time, energy, and money are saved. Follow these tips to Recycle Often. Recycle Right.
Recycling must fit inside your yellow cart with the lid closed. It does not have to be bagged, but clear bags are preferred.
No sorting is needed, but containers should be rinsed and free of food and liquid.
Trash and recycling are collected once per week. Find your collection day by entering your address in the tool below or take a look at the collection schedule here.
Carts must be placed at the curb - or in the alley, if an alley collection - by 7 a.m. on your collection day. Carts may be set out before 6 p.m. or one hour before sunset the night before pickup, whichever is earlier.
