Non-Residential Recycling Services

Beginning Monday, December 1 -- The City of Tuscaloosa will expand curbside recycling services to its nonresidential garbage customers. This free, voluntary service is available to businesses and nonprofits with active City of Tuscaloosa water and garbage accounts.

With this expansion, City nonresidential customers will be able to recycle the same plastics, metals and paper products accepted on residential routes and in drop-off trailers.

Customers will receive a 96-gallon City recycling cart at no cost. If the customer decides to no longer participate in the service, the cart must be returned to the City.

Recycling will be collected on the same day as the garbage service. Customers must put plastics and metals inside a plastic or paper bag before placing the items in the recycling cart. Cardboard must be emptied, flattened and placed at the curb next to the recycling cart. If volume of recycling is higher than expected, a second cart can be requested at no cost. For more information about the recycling service, call Tuscaloosa 311 at 205-248-5311.

If you would like to participate in the curbside cardboard recycling collection program, please fax (205) 248-5796 or email the application. ESD will review and your business will be added to the route.
