Recycle Columbia

It’s trendy. It’s “green”! And best of all, it’s FREE!
Recycling is easy and more convenient than ever!

Curbside recycling is offered on a BI-WEEKLY basis.

A 96 gallon blue recycling cart will be delivered to your address once you have signed up, and when we have recycling cans in stock. Then, on your pick up day, simply roll the cart out to the street for pick up.

All recyclable materials will be mixed in this single container, requiring NO sorting! Please do NOT bag recyclables!


  • Only #1 and #2 plastics (please look on the container to find the number if you are unsure)
  • Aluminum/Steel/Tin cans
  • Paper
  • Cardboard
  • Magazines/Catalogs

NOTE: Only customers who already receive automated trash service with the city are eligible for the recycling program. At this time, recycling is only available in residential areas. In the meantime, commercial businesses will be placed on a wait list.
