Recycling at Your Curb

   

Get in the Recycle Habit – Every Other Week
Curbside recycling is every other week on your garbage day and comes free with garbage service. Remember, there is no charge for extra recycling set-outs, so feel free to use cardboard boxes (these boxes will also be recycled). Contact Waste Management at 800-592-9995 to determine your recycling day or request a new recycling calendar.

All Recycling Goes in the Cart!
View the recycling guide for a list of accepted items. All recyclable items can go in your blue cart: clean paper, cans, glass and plastic bottles, jars, jugs and dairy tubs, and cardboard. Please keep recycling 'loose' - empty out bags or boxes - to help sorting equipment do its job.
  

Recycling Is (Almost) Unlimited
Upgrade to a 96-gallon recycling cart or add a second recycling cart at no additional charge. Visit Waste Management's website or call 800-592-9995 to request your new cart. The old recycling tubs or cardboard box(es) are great for holding extra recycling – just set them next to your cart on collection day.

What happens if you have a pile of about forty moving boxes that would take months to stuff into your recycling cart?
"Jumbo" recycling set-outs are also collected from customers at no cost. Please contact Waste Management at 800-592-9995, and they will arrange to collect that "jumbo" pile of recyclables as soon as possible.

Recycle Motor Oil at the Curb
Recycle up to three gallons of used motor oil on your scheduled recycling day. Place oil in tightly capped, clear one-gallon plastic milk jugs next to your blue recycling cart. Don’t put the oil jugs in the cart. Label jugs with your name and address. Each jug is inspected, so if the motor oil is mixed with any other liquid it will be returned directly to you. Remember, it’s 'MOO' - Motor Oil Only!

For free options to safely get rid of larger amounts of motor oil, motor oil that's mixed with other fluids or just about any other hazardous waste (pesticides, oil-based paint, antifreeze, batteries, fluorescent tubes and twisty bulbs, etc.) visit the Local Hazardous Waste Management Program’s website.
