Did You Know?
If one recycling cart is contaminated, then the entire recycling truck is considered contaminated and cannot be recycled. Please use your 96 gallon black recycling cart only for the items we accept in our program. Items should be placed in your recycling cart loose and not contained in a plastic bag.
In the coming months, the City of Monroe will be completing an audit of all recycling carts due to contamination. Failure to recycle right could result in your cart being removed and fines for not following recycling guidelines.
Effective October 1, 2019 glass will no longer be accepted as an approved recycling item. Please place all glass with your bagged trash.
The City of Monroe provides recycling collection as part of your garbage collection at no additional charge. Recycling is collected every other week on the same day as garbage collection.
The new recycling calendar for 2019-2020 will be mailed to residents in the upcoming weeks. Please see the dates below for pickup until the new copy is available.
