Paper, Cardboard, and Newspaper

Paper, Cardboard, and Newspaper

Allendale is going dual stream! Starting January 1, 2015 Allendale is improving its curbside recycling program by introducing a simple, efficient way to recycle cardboard and mixed paper. On your recycling Thursday, place your cardboard, junk mail, and newspaper in one container at your curb before 7am. Please click here for the complete Solid Waste & Recycling Curbside Regulations & Schedule.

The Department of Public Works encourages residents to bring any of these items to Allendale’s Recycling Center. At the Recycling Center, labeled bins make recycling quick and easy. Materials should be left loose, and put in the proper, provided container.
