What's Accepted

Collection Trucks

City recycling trucks are used to pick up curbside recycling. On occasion, if a recycling truck is out of service, a yard waste truck may be used to collect and transport recycling so that service is not interrupted. In those rare instances, recycling is co-mingled and sorted at the recycling facility.
