Residential Recycling

Residents, schools, institutions, and agencies must recycle with the Department of Sanitation in clearly labeled bins or clear bags. Sanitation provides free decals to label bins for recycling.

Recyclable items include glass, metal, rigid plastic, and beverage cartons (blue decal); and paper and cardboard (green decal).

You must place recyclable materials curbside in clear bags or labeled recycling bins on the evening before your scheduled recycling collection day according to the following schedule:

  • April 2 through September 30, between 5 PM and midnight
  • October 1 through April 1, between 4 PM and midnight

There is no limit to the amount of material you can put out for collection.

If your scheduled collection day is a holiday, recyclables are collected the following week.
