Collection/pickup of the recycling cart will occur every other week, the same day as the resident's usual trash service. Recycling routes will alternate weeks between the west side of Emporia and the east side.
During implementation of the curbside recycling program, West Side Pickup will have their first recycling collection the week of June 1st to June 5th. East Side Pickup will have their first recycling pickup the week of June 8th to June 12th.
Please note: A different truck is used to pick up recyclables. It may be several hours between the time your trash cart is emptied and the time your recycle cart is emptied.
To find out what day or what week, you may call the Public Works Department at 340-6339.
