The City of Summit has contracted with a new recycling vendor, Grand Sanitation Service, for household recycling pickup. The new contract and all subsequent changes will go into effect on Friday, July 1, 2022.
The pickup schedule for household curbside collection will change under the new contract. Pickup is now five days a week, on the same day as residents’ weekly trash collection. View the trash collection schedule on the city website. Please note, there is no change to how trash collection operates.
Recycling bins should be placed at the curb the night before pickup, or by 6AM on the morning of pickup.
If pickup falls on a holiday or snow day, recycling will be collected the next day, and every collection during that week following the holiday will move forward one day. Recycling will not be picked up on the following holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas Day. All pickups during the week of 7/4/22 will follow this modified schedule.
Household curbside recycling will now operate as a single-stream collection; cardboard and paper items can be placed in the same container(s) as plastic and glass items. Items can be in as many containers as is necessary to fit all items at the curb; they do not need to be in one single container. Clean and dry recyclable items should be placed in covered containers at the curb. Wet cardboard and paper cannot be recycled.
