Recycling


Ashford Hollow has automated recycling which utilizes a 96 gallon green cart that is rolled out to the curb on collection day.  Recycling is collected on a bi-weekly "Monday" schedule

To view the calendar and download a copy, click here.  The file is large so may take some time to download depending on your internet connection speed. Ashford Hollow is on the "Schedule A" week.  City holidays are marked with a circle.  If there is a city holiday, our normal Monday recycle collection will be moved to Tuesday.  We are the "yellow" schedule:  You can also find the recycle days marked on the website calendar with the link on the "Calendar" tab to the left.
 
Recycling must be put inside the city-provided container which should be placed at the curb between 6 pm Sunday and 7 am Monday on the regularly scheduled collection day.   Please place the cart at the curb with the handle facing your house.

The container must be accessible to the collection truck and not blocked by obstacles, including parked cars, mailboxes and trees.  Drivers will not move improperly placed containers. 

Containers must be removed from the curb line and/or public view by 10 pm on the day of collection and stored in a secure location.

What items can go in the cart?

  • Newspaper

  • Plastic containers 1 through 5 and 7 (rinsed and drained)

  • Magazines

  • Aluminum and tin cans (rinsed and drained)

  • Catalogs

  • Cardboard (flattened)

  • Phonebooks

A list of the items that can go in the cart is printed on the cart lid for your convenience. This new service will allow you to recycle glass, which was not previously collected curbside.

Please remember this is NOT a trash can. No garbage, yard trimmings, trash, food or hazardous waste should be placed in the cart. No plastic bags, meat trays, pizza boxes, styrofoam or broken glass can be accepted because of contamination. Only those items indicated on the cart lid are acceptable.

Why can’t I place plastic bags in the cart for collection?

Plastic bags jam the automated machinery at the processing facility. Residents can take their plastic bags to some grocery stores or other local stores and place them in their containers for recycling. The Westpark Consumer Recycling Center located at 5900 Westpark also accepts clean, litter free plastic grocery and film bags.
