Recycling

Walthourville makes recycling easy! The city began collecting recyclables in January 2011 at no additional cost to our customers. As established by City Ordinance 10-12-01, recycling is mandatory and available to all customers who have garbage pickup with the City of Walthourville.

Recyling is collected the second and fourth week of the month. Recylables must be placed at the curb in the green polycart labeled RECYCLE on the same day as other trash and/or household garbage is collected. If your recycling is contaminated with non-recyclable items, the lid will be left off as a method of informing the customer. The following is a list of items that CAN and CAN NOT be placed in the green poly-cart provided by the city:

YES:
Cardboard Boxes
Corrugated Cardboard
Tin
Aluminum
Steel Cans
Plastic Containers (Jugs, no.1, no.2)

Tubs
Cups
Pails
NO:

Remember, recycling is not optional. It is mandatory. Fines of up to $1,000.00 and/or imprisonment of up to 30 days plus court costs may be imposed if convicted of noncompliance.  FINES ARE STRICTLY ENFORCED.
