Highlights of the New Recycling Program
Your old recycling containers will be replaced by a new 96-gallon wheeled cart.
It will no longer be necessary to separate your recyclables. Place all acceptable materials in your new recycling cart.
Acceptable recyclable materials include mixed paper, newspaper, unwaxed cardboard, tin, aluminum, and rinsed plastic bottles (with a neck smaller than the base)
Glass will no longer be picked up as part of the curbside recycling collection program. We have located one glass recycling drop off location at the Puyallup Elks Lodge located at 314 27th Street NE (on 27th Street just north of Main).
We are working with the D.M. Disposal to locate two more glass drop-off locations in Puyallup. If you have preferences on where those two sites should be located please call the City's Public Affairs Officer, Glenda Carino at 253-770-3370.
