Commercial Recycling FAQs

Answers to your frequently asked questions about commercial recycling service.

What if a holiday falls within my service week?2022-12-08T10:33:59-08:00

Your service day becomes one day late for the remainder of the week. For example, if a holiday falls on a Tuesday and your normal service day is Wednesday, then your new service day for the week is Thursday.

What if it snows or is too icy for pickup?2022-12-19T14:15:03-08:00
  1. During inclement weather we make all efforts to pick up as conditions safely allow.
  2. Place your garbage and recycle at the curb by 6:00am, on your regular scheduled day.
  3. If you cannot safely get your cans to the curb, please double up for the following week.
  4. If the garbage is not collected by 4:00 pm,  remove it from the curb, and set it out the following week.
  5. Recycle and Yard Waste rotate weeks and the schedule remains the same throughout the year.  During inclement weather and a missed pick up occurs, please refer to the pickup schedule calendar for your next regular or recycle or yard waste collection day.  This schedule does not change.

You can order additional bins for an extra charge.

Can I put a large cardboard box next to my recycling bin?2022-11-09T13:56:01-08:00

No. Our trucks are automated and recycle items must fit into your bin.

How do I know if an item is recyclable?2022-10-25T12:49:37-07:00

You no longer have to read symbols or guess what goes in your bin. Check out our Recycle Right link and see how easy it is.

What happens if I put a non-recyclable item in my bin?2022-10-25T12:49:48-07:00

Putting non-recyclable items in your recycling bin contaminates the recycling stream and can result in costly damage to recycling equipment. It can also cause added expense to a recycling program. Know how to Recycle Right by clicking here.

Our drivers may reject contaminated bins, and service fees may apply. If you’re in doubt as to whether an item is recyclable, throw it in your garbage bin.
