“No-Sort” Recycling Program!

The City of Moorhead is transitioning from source separated recycling to “no-sort” recycling. Beginning July 1, 2017 all your recycling can be placed in one container, no more sorting!

Residents with Gray 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. You can download a Detailed Color-Coded Recycling Map showing a designated recycling week and you can also download the Printable Recycling Schedule

Place your recycling tote on the curb before 5 am, 2 feet from any obstacles that includes snow banks, garbage totes mailboxes and cars.

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.
