I occasionally have extra recycling and my cart is full, what do I do?

Residents are allowed to set out up to three (3) 14-gallon bins or like size containers (i.e laundry basket) next to their brown recycle cart.  The driver will empty the brown cart, get out of the truck and empty the items in the additional containers into the brown cart and empty it. Items in the additional containers must be able to fit into the brown cart.  If you routinely have an overflow of recycling, you should consider leasing an additional brown cart for $36 per cart per year.  You are allowed a maximum of three (3) brown carts.  For information about leasing additional carts, contact the Department of Public Service at 989-837-6900.
