Photo of recycling bins and bagsWhat Can I Place My Recyclables In?
All recycling must be placed in the approved 18 gallon bins. Republic will begin delivering the new bins the week of January 21. You may still use your old red Ameriwaste bins in addition to the Republic bins. If you have additional recyclables and need to bag them please only use the clear or the clear blue bags so that it is easily identified as recycling and set them out curbside with your bins.

If you need an additional bin please call Republic Services Customer Service at 1-800-942-9332. There are more answers to recycling questions on our FAQ page.
