Container and Storage Specifications

 

Commercial Recycling

Recycling Container Specifications 
  • Recycling containers (carts or dumpsters) will be delivered to your service location, which in most cases will be in the same area as your trash container. Place the recycling container at this location for collection on your service day. 
  • Collection vehicles require 15' of vertical clearance along the path to the container and 25' of vertical clearance at the service location.

  • Store your recycling container out of public view. Containers may not be left on the sidewalk, street, or in a location that impedes traffic.

  • General specifications for recycling containers are provided below. Certain properties may not meet appropriate access requirements for dumpster service, and 95-gallon carts will be the only option.
