Curbside Recycling

You play an important part in your city’s recycling performance. Bottles, cans and paper belong in your curbside recycling container. Rigid plastic containers are now OK as well.

Recycling puts valuable materials into the marketplace — reducing landfill costs, creating jobs, conserving energy and natural resources.

Tips for Recycling

These simple tips will help make your recycling efforts more effective:

  • Empty all cans and bottles.
  • Place your recycling container out in the street, with the wheels up against the curb by 6 a.m. of the collection day. Place the container at least two feet away from your trash bin or any other obstructions like fire hydrants or cars.
  • Soiled or wet paper belongs in the trash container.
  • Keep the recycling loose in the container, not bagged.
  • Find your local curbside recycling service

In Barstow (including Amboy, Baker, Cima, Fort Irwin, Haloran, Kelso, Lenwood, Ludlow, Mountain Pass, Newberry Springs, Nipton, and Yermo)
