Recycling Carts and Garbage Carts

New larger trash cans

As part of the new contract, GFL will supply a 64 gallon recycling container at no charge to residents who request one.  Call them directly at 1-866-772-8900 or fill out the Order Form .  The City will also sell 64 and 96 gallon trash containers to residents who need a larger container for rubbish.  The 64 gallon containers are $40.11 each; the 96 gallon containers are $46.62/each.

Recycling carts will be an Olympia green color with a matching green lid.  They will be
  hot stamped with “City of St. Clair Shores Recycling Only” on the side of each cart and the lid will have a full color label .  The garbage cart will also use a green cart, but the lid will be a dark grey color. Both sides of the garbage cart will be hot stamped with “City of St. Clair Shores Garbage Only” .  The carts are not interchangeable.  GFL  will not service trash placed in a recycling cart.

Use of the larger containers for recycling or waste collection is voluntary.  Residents may continue to use the 18 gallon blue recycling containers or a 32 gallon waste can.  The choice is yours.  Residents who choose to use the 64 gallon recycling carts may keep their 18 gallon bin or place it in their 64 gallon cart for recycling pickup by Rizzo Environmental Services.

If you want a larger trash/recycling container, fill out the 
form and mail it with your payment to the address on the form.
