General rules for pickup of recyclable materials

  • Be sure to bring your bin to the roadside before 7:00 AM on pickup day.
  • Only one recycling bin per single-family residence is permitted during blue bin week. This pickup occurs on an alternating basis (every 2 weeks) with the regular waste pickup.

  • Recyclable materials are picked up exclusively from the rolling blue bin provided by the Commission.

  • If waste pickup employees become aware of a contamination risk in connection with recyclables at a residence, they have the right not to empty the bin and to report the address so the Commission can intervene.
  • Recyclable materials not picked up on public holidays or due to snowstorms will be picked up on the next business day.
