Curbside Recycling

Recycling and preventing waste can sometimes reduce garbage enough for residents to order a smaller garbage container for a lower rate.

Recycling Tips


  • Empty clean recyclables out of bags and boxes and put them loose in your cart so that they can be easily identified and sorted at the recycling center. Clean paper bags and cardboard boxes are recyclable. Just put them in your cart after you empty them. Recyclables in plastic bags may be mistaken for garbage at the sorting center.

  • NO plastic bags in recycling. (Reuse or recycle at grocery stores) - Plastic bags get caught in conveyor belts at the recycling center.

  • NO shredded paper in recycling. Because of its size, shredded paper is difficult to sort from other recyclables.
WM Northwest Garbage and Recycling Service is Required

Local ordinance requires all residents to subscribe to garbage and recycling collection in order to maintain public health, prevent public litter, and preserve natural resources.
