Recycle More. Recycle Better.

Expanding your recycling options and saving the planet

 

What curbside won’t, we will.

things that are not accepted in your regular curbside recycling pick-up.

How it works

Fill your bucket

We provide a bucket (donated by Parr Lumber) to fill with items that can’t go into your curbside recycling.

Place buckets curbside

If you have any items that don’t fit, you can set them beside the bucket for pickup.

Collection after 8:30am

Please have your bucket ready by 8:30am and place it at least 3 feet from the curb.
