Why Recycle?

At Suburban Waste, we believe in safeguarding our environment. To support this, we’ve streamlined the recycling process to make it convenient for you. All your recyclables can be placed into a single recycling cart, which is collected bi-weekly. This cart is distinct from your regular trash cart and is marked exclusively for recyclables. For efficient service, ensure your recycle cart is at the curbside by 7:00 a.m. on the scheduled collection day.
