Recycling

It’s easy to recycle with the new no-sort system called “single-stream recycling.” ALL recycling items can be placed in the same container.

Recycling service is provided once a week.  Recycling items will be collected on the first day of your regularly scheduled household garbage collection. So if you have Monday/Friday garbage days, your recycling day is Monday. If you have Tuesday/Friday garbage days, your recycling day is Tuesday.  However, residents in the Lake Placid area has collection on Fridays. Here is the map which shows recycling pickup days.

To prepare your items for recycling, please empty, rinse and remove lids from all containers.
