Curbside Recycling

If your recycling has been missed, please contact Advanced Disposal directly at 1-855-386-1214.  This is a toll free number.

Place all recycling on the boulevard in front of your house, within 5 feet of the curb. Recycling must be on the curb by 7:00 a.m., come snow, rain or shine.  Use paper grocery bags only. No plastic bags, not even to hold your recyclables!  If your recycling day falls on a major holiday, the recycling will be picked up on the Saturday following the holiday.  The holidays are:  New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day.

What if I don't have a driveway out to the street?

If you don't have a driveway to the street, our contractor will pick up in your alley.  Everyone with a driveway should put their cart out on the curb, "within 5 feet of the curb".
