Each household is provided with recycling collection service one day each week. This collection will occur on one of the same days designated for regular trash collection. View Recycling Collection Day Map.

Recycling collection points for each home are the same as the regular trash collection points, which is usually in the alley. To ensure proper collection, place empty, clean and dry recyclables out by 7 a.m. On rainy days, please do not set out cardboard or newspaper (that is not in a blue bag).
