“No-Sort” Recycling Program!

The City of Moorhead has transitioned from source separated recycling to “no-sort” recycling. All your recycling can be placed in one container, no more sorting!

 

Residents with Grey Garbage Totes

Recycling Collection Schedule and Details
Your current recycling schedule will remain the same. Your recycling is picked up every other week on the same day your garbage is collected. Each day is split geographically into A and B weeks.

  • Find your recycling day (Monday through Friday) and week (A or B) on the Recycling Map.  The calendar on the map will help you find your recycling dates.

Place your recycling tote on the curb before 5 am, 2 feet from any obstacles including garbage totes mailboxes, snowbanks, and vehicles.

Place items in the tote loosely and make sure all your items can fit into one container. If you have extra items, either wait until your next collection day or you can bring the materials to one of the 4 drop-off locations described below.
