Recycling

Residential Curbside Recycling
The City of Denison offers an automated recycling collection system that uses a blue 95 gallon recycling cart. Recyclables will be collected every other week.
Be sure to place your recycling cart approximately 3 feet from your trash cart. All mixed recyclables can be placed in the provided 95-gallon cart; there is no need to sort materials for collection. Please have recycle carts out by 7am. See information below for acceptable or unacceptable items or download the print-out to keep on hand.

Recycle Map and Recycle Calendar
