Sanitation & Recycling
The City of Collins contracts with an outside waste management company for solid waste collection and recycling. Everyone within the city limits is required to have garbage collection every Wednesday.
*Effective November 1st, 2019 we are going to implement Curb Side Recycling. There will be a 96 gallon cart that will be picked up by Waste Management every other week. Please refer to the calendar on the CALENDAR OF EVENTS section under the COMMUNITY TAB to see when pickup dates are scheduled.
If you are in the habit of recycling - non recyclable items - the driver will note this and inform you that this needs to be corrected on future pickups. If the abuse continues, you will be removed from the pickup route and will have to find other means of disposing of your recycle items.
If you are needing assistance on what is a recyclable item and what is not...please refer to the below website "RECYLE OFTEN - RECYCLE MORE".
