Collection Schedule

View the collection schedule and then place recycling at the curb by 7:30 a.m. on your collection day and no sooner than 6 p.m. on the day before collection. Recycle is collected once a month the same day as your refuse collection. Recycle carts should be placed with the handle facing your home. Allow at least a four foot space around your cart for the automated arm of the truck to access your cart.

Changes to the Curbside Recycling Program

In early August 2010, the City of Midland began a fully automated, single stream recycling program for residents. This program allows for a wider variety of recyclables that can be collected at the curb. See below for an expanded list of acceptable collectibles. Simply place your recyclables in the cart. No need to bag or sort. Remember to rinse out all food residues from containers.

Contracted Service

Republic Waste Services, the City’s contracted service provider for recycling collection, has provided each resident with a brown, 95-gallon cart. These carts are owned by Republic. Please note that the brown 95-gallon carts may only be used for recycling.

If a resident moves from their current address, the cart should remain at the initial delivery location. If you would like additional brown carts, they are available for lease through Republic Waste Services at a cost of $36 per year. For more information on leasing additional brown carts, contact the Department of Public Services at 989-837-6900.
