Recycling is provided at no extra cost with your basic garbage service. Recycling and preventing waste can sometimes reduce garbage enough for residents to order a smaller garbage container for a lower rate.

Cart Tagging

The City of Duvall and WM use "Recycling Only" Oops tags to monitor contamination in recycling carts. If a driver spots non-recyclable material in your recycling cart, the cart will be tagged, and you will be informed on proper disposal. Recycling carts should be free of contaminants prior to servicing.

Curbside 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.

  • Empty, clean, and loose. These three words can greatly improve the quality of recyclables placed in your cart. You can do this by rinsing out recyclables and placing empty containers directly in your cart loose, not in a plastic bag. Learn more about how you can Recycle Right - click here.

  • Corrugated Cardboard. All corrugated cardboard boxes smaller than three (3) feet square, and placed in the customers' Recycling Cart. Corrugated cardboard boxes larger than three (3) feet square must be flattened by Customer prior to collection. Have extra cardboard that won't fit in your cart? Please don't leave it out in the rain. Flatten it and place next to your cart on the morning of your collection day.

  • 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.

  • Extra Recycling. There is no limit on the amount of clean recyclables you can set out for collection. Put recycling that doesn't fit in your cart in recycling bins, cardboard boxes (limit 3'x3'x3'), or a 32-gallon can with handles marked "recycling". Please don't leave any extra recyclables in cardboard boxes out in the rain. Place next to your cart on the morning of your collection day.
