Have Extra Recycling Bins?
If you need to return old or broken recycling bins, please note that Public Works will be pick them up on the day after your regular collection day in November. Please stack and place them upside down at the curb. Broken bins will be recycled and bins in good condition will be washed, stored and redistributed.
Going forward, on collection day the recycling truck can take broken bins, as well as other large plastics such as 5-gal pails, broken toys and laundry baskets.
