Have a broken or unneeded blue recycling bin at your home? Add bin pickup to your "Cart". We must have a specific pickup request in order to take your old bin.
If you ordered a new bin at the same time, we will pick up your old bin when we deliver your new one.
Blue bin pickups are made by County staff, not by your recycling collection crew. They may happen any day of the week, and not necessarily on your recycling day.
We send broken blue bins we collect from residents
back to the bin manufacturer for recycling.
