The City of Plymouth provides curbside recycling collection every other week for all single-family homes and residential units in buildings with up to eight units. Place recyclable materials at the curb by 7 a.m. on your collection day. Although collection will be made on the same day of the week as previously, collection times may vary.
Recycling collection is made every other week on Wednesdays, Thursdays or Fridays, depending on where you live (PDF). Each of these areas are further divided into smaller "blue" and "grey" areas to designate the week for recycling collection. Talk to your garbage hauler about matching your garbage collection day to your recycling day.

Plymouth residents put all their recyclable material in one 65-gallon wheeled cart. No sorting is necessary. To receive a replacement, extra or different size recycling cart, call Allied Waste Services at 952-941-5174 or go to alliedwasteminnesota.com.
If you move from your current home, please leave the cart(s) for the new owners. The recycling carts are the property of Allied Waste Services.
