Dear Valued Customer:

We regret to have to inform you that as of 4/1/19, mixed recyclables will be charged at the same rate as trash.
13 gallon bag of recyclables will be $2.50 to dispose of; 
$4.50  for 30 gallon bags and up.

Many factors have contributed to this difficult decision:

  • Increased cost to dispose of customer recyclables at a higher rate than trash;
  • Decreased recycling market, with some products not having a market at all.

There will still be FREE Sort Segregated Recycling items to include:

-Tin Cans                                -Aluminum Cans

-Scrap Metal                          -Appliances (items without Freon)


We encourage customers to continue to sort and separate these items from mixed recyclables.

If you have your recycling in a bin/tote, please sort the items we still have markets for as identified at your station.

If you have bagged recyclables, please sort as signage requests and empty out the contents.  Keep your bag for re-use.

Attendants are here to assist and help, as we transition to new processes.

Please know that we value your business, and will continue to provide quality customer
service to the Brandon Community.
