Recycling Collection


Residential Recycling

Boise residents can set out unlimited recycling every other week.  If you occasionally have extra recyclable materials, place them in an empty cardboard box or container like a milk crate and label the materials RECYCLING.  Set the box or extra container next to your recycling cart and it will be collected on your regular recycling day. 

If you are a great recycler and need more recycling capacity – first check to make sure your cart is 95 gallons.  We offer three sizes of recycling and trash carts:  48, 65, and 95 gallons.  If you need a larger cart, call Republic Services at (208) 345-1266 to swap your cart for a larger cart. 

If you have a 95-gallon cart and need an additional cart, you can order an extra recycling cart for $.54 per month.  Call Republic Service at (208) 345-1266 to rent a second recycling cart.
