When you report a broken cart, we will schedule a repair appointment for you.
On the day of your appointment, leave your empty cart at the curb for our staff. You do not need to be at home.
We issue only one cart per house. If your weekly paper recyclables exceed the cart capacity,
call us for assistance.
These wheeled carts are for
paper recycling only. Use
blue bins for setting out cans, bottles, and jars for curbside recycling collection.
Sorry, we do not offer wheeled carts
for paper recycling in alternate colors.
