RECYCLING PROGRAMS & INFORMATION


 Commingled Curbside Recycling

Effective April 1, 2011, co-mingled curbside recycling will be incorporated into the garbage service for all residential and *business auto-cart customers (4 units or less). A blue recycle cart will not be delivered unless the customer requests the service.


If you do not have co-mingled curbside recycle service at your residence or *business but would like a bin and pick-up service, you will need to opt-into curbside recycling by completing and submitting the form below. A 96 gallon blue recycle bin and information will be delivered to you the last week of March with service to begin on your assigned schedule in April 2011.


*NOTE: Businesses that only have container or roll-off service that want to participate in the co-mingled curbside recycling service will be required to pay the $5.00 per cart fee as curbside recycling is only included in auto-cart garbage service. Businesses can use the below form to register for recycling service or by contacting the City of Pocatello Sanitation Department at 234-6192 or 234-6193.
