Curbside Recycling Program

Duluth was one of the first cities to implement a weekly multi-material curbside recycling program. With community involvement and support, this program continues to surpass each year’s expectations. Duluth residents can divert much of our curbside waste away from landfills. Place your bin at the curb before 7:00 a.m. each Wednesday morning for collection.

Recycling is offered to Duluth residents at no charge. You may obtain a recycling bin at the Duluth Public Works building, 2450 Chattahoochee Drive. If you prefer a large recycling rolling cart, please email RWard4@republicservices.com and include your name, address and phone number in the email. These carts will be delivered to your home on Fridays by Republic Services. Bring your old recycling bin to Public Works to exchange or leave it out at the curb on your cart delivery date. If you are moving and leaving Duluth, please return the old bin to Public Works or leave it for the new resident.
