  • Please do not place recyclables in plastic bags and do not place trash in your recycling cart.
  • All cardboard should be cut to fit inside the recycling cart.
  • Because garbage and recycling are picked by separate trucks, keep your recycling container 5 ft away from obstructions such as, your trash can, mailbox, utility poles, trees, and parked cars. If possible put garbage & recycling on opposite sides of the driveway.
  • Be sure to have recyclables at the curb the night before your collection day. Collection begins at 4:30 AM.
  • All recyclables must fit into your cart with the lid CLOSED. For extra recyclables, you may: save for a future pick-up day, ask a neighbor if they have extra room in their cart, bring to the County drop off site, located at 1419 Holland Road, Appleton - Monday through Friday 7:00 am to 3:30 pm and Saturdays 7:00 am to 11:00am.
