Hernando County citizens with trash service also have weekly curbside recycling collection included in their service. Curbside recycling is collected with a two bin system where residents sort cardboard and paper in one bin and plastics #1-7, aluminum and tin in a second bin. Please note that our recycling program does not include glass. These bins are then picked up by our contractor and delivered to the Northwest Waste Management Facility. The material is then further sorted and prepared for shipment to various locations by a contractor.  

If you currently subscribe to curbside trash service through Republic Services, once per week curbside Recycling is included in your service at no additional cost.

To get started with curbside recycling please call Republic Services at (352) 540-6457 to have your free bins delivered and determine your recycling pickup day.

On your pickup day, place all of your paper and cardboard in one container and aluminum, tin, and plastics in the second container. Place the containers curbside before 6 a.m. on your service day.

Curbside recycling is a great opportunity to help yourself, your community and the environment.
