COLLIERVILLE, Tenn. - You may already have your new burgundy ‘Collierville Recycles’ 95 gallon cart by now…if not, it will be delivered soon. The new carts should not be used until Monday, June 30 when the Town of Collierville new recycling program begins.

Collierville Public Services Department/Solid Waste Division employees will pick up your recycle cart, along with your TOC green garbage cart, on the same day, at the same place as your regular scheduled collection day.

Sorting recyclables is no longer necessary; just put it all in the new cart and position it curbside within three feet of the back of the curb, out of the gutter, no later than 7am on your regular collection day.

The small bin, previously used, can no longer be emptied because trucks using an automated lifting arm will now collect and empty the 95 gallon recycle bin. You can keep the small bin, or place it curbside for proper disposal by the Town.

Acceptable recycle items include: Aluminum Cans, Metal Food & Beverage Cans, Glass Bottles & Jars, Milk & Juice Cartons, Plastic Bottles & Jugs #1-7 (w/ lids), Cereal & Food Boxes, Wide-mouth Plastic Containers, Mixed Paper, Newspaper, Office Paper, & Junk Mail Paper, Hardcover Books, Magazines, Phone Books, Catalogs, Aluminum Foil/trays, Rigid Plastics, Cardboard Boxes, and Pizza Boxes.

If you have not been recycling and want to start, just call 901-457-2800, ext. 0 and request delivery of a bin. If you need to verify your sanitation pick up day you may go to www.collierville.com and click Maps Gallery/sanitation schedule.
