MIX IT UP.
One Tote. No Sorting. Curbside Pickup.
Due to changes in the world wide recycling market the City of Bozeman and other local recycling services will no longer accept non-bottle shaped #1 and #2 plastics or any #3 - #7 plastics.
The City of Bozeman Solid Waste Division offers single-stream curbside recycling services for City of Bozeman Solid Waste/Garbage Collection customers. Single-stream service started October 1, 2013 and offers every other week pickup service on the same day as your normal garbage collection. Single-stream recycling services cost just $9.93 per month and includes one 100-gallon bin for your recyclable items.
If you desire a tote smaller than 100 gallons, the city offers 65-gallon totes. Please give us a call and let us help you determine the tote that's right for you.
Larger totes are available for commercial and multi-residential customers.
Give us a call at 582-3200 for more information on sizes and pricing.
What Can I Recycle?
There are a lot of items that can be recycled via the single-stream recycling service. Please see Acceptable Materials for a complete list of items that can and cannot be recycled using this service.
What do I need to do to prepare my recyclables for pickup?
- Rinse containers with water and leave no food residue in the recyclable containers
