Recycling

The City recovers about 2 tons daily of recyclables and cardboard. Residential recycling is picked up at the curbside for all residential houses inside the City limits.  This service is offered once every week and is collected on all holidays with the exception of Christmas day, which will be collected either on the Saturday before or after Christmas day. The City furnishes one 18 gallon bin for each resident. If additional bins are needed, they may be purchased from the City by calling (803) 436-2558.
