Print Recycling Info

 

Recycling is important to the environment so it's important to us! 

We want to make it as easy as possible for you to recycle, so with Suburban Waste you can simply throw all your recyclables in one recycling cart that is collected every second week. 

The recycling cart is similar to your regular trash cart except it is clearly marked for Recyclables only.

To ensure prompt service, please have your recycle cart at curbside by 7:00 a.m. on collection day.

Recycling pickup is every other week.
