Recycling Instructions for Residential Customers


Single-Stream Recycling

  • As a residential customer, you may choose a recycling cart size (35-, 64- or 96-gallon) that best fits your needs.

  • Recycle carts have yellow lids.

  • Place carts curbside by 6 a.m. and five feet from other carts or obstacles to ensure pickup.
