How do I recycle in Pasco County?

In Pasco you can provide your own container (bin, can or cart) or call your hauler to order a cart.  The Residential Curbside Recycling Program is available to single-family residential units or multifamily units being serviced as a single-family.  This means if you're paying for twice-a-week curbside garbage pickup, you already have recycling service. 

Recycling is voluntary, but we encourage you to participate in order to help reduce our waste stream.  Your garbage hauler is required to provide you with a schedule for your recyclable pickups: it may or may not be on the same day as your garbage pickup.  Pasco recycles the following items: 

  • Aluminum cans
  • Metal cans (food cans)
  • Plastic bottles, jugs, and small containers
  • Paper and cardboard

Please throw away caps, lids, and spray bottle nozzles, and make sure your items are clean and dry.  Put everything in the same recycling container and place your recycling at the curb the night before your recycling pick-up day.
