Residential Service


We've got your New colors!

It's easy to save money—and the environment—when you recycle. Here's how:

  1. Use your blue cart for recyclables (paper, plastic, etc.).
  2. Use your green cart for organics (yard clippings & food scraps).
  3. Use your black cart for landfill/garbage (non-recyclable solid waste).   

Your service fee is based on the size of your black cart—the smaller your cart, the less you pay. So recycle more, "downsize" your black cart, and save!
