Recycling

Recycling is a simple yet powerful means of improving the quality of life in Sumter. Recycling is a growing movement throughout the community. This service is included in the $8.00 fee. Currently the City accepts the following materials in the Curbside Program:

  • Aluminum cans
  • Steel / Tin cans
  • Glass – only bottles and jars making sure the color is clear, green or brown
  • Paper – newspaper, inserts, copy paper, phone books and paperback books
  • Cardboard is picked up separately on Fridays.  All packing material must be removed and the boxes broken down.
