Recycling

The City of Monroe provides recycling collection to our residents every other week on the same day as your garbage collection. 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.

Solid Waste staff will audit carts for contamination.  Failure to recycle right could result in your cart being removed and/or fines for not following our recycling guidelines. 

Are you "wishful recycling"?  Has your recycling cart been tagged? 

This short video give examples why your recycling cart may get tagged on service day-
