Recycle+ Services

In addition to standard residential curbside recycling service offerings, we offer an optional recycling service for hard to recycle items including film plastic, #1 clamshell plastics, textiles, and compact fluorescent light bulbs. Pride will provide you a purple bin with a lid, so these materials can be kept dry. There is an additional charge for this service. This service is on call, so you can schedule pick-ups when you have a full bin of materials ready to be collected. If you’re interested in signing up for this service, click here.

Beyond the Cart!

These items can be recycled but cannot be mixed in with your standard commingled recycling cart. You will be given clear plastic bags to sort and contain each material within the purple bin on your collection day. Then simply contact us when you’re ready to schedule a pick up and place the bin at the curb on your designated day. This material must be kept dry and no extra bags outside of the bin will be accepted on collection days. If you have additional material, it can be included in your next scheduled pick up.
