Knoxville:Simple, Free Curbside Recycling

Great news:

The City of Knoxville introduces a Simple to Use Household Curbside Recycling program!

No sorting by type of recyclable item – all recyclables go into the recycle cart together.

Cart provided by the City of Knoxville and will be delivered to your house in September of this year. The cart is on wheels to make it easy for you to roll it to the curb.

Pick up at your curb – household recyclables will be picked up curbside every other week. The pick-up service will begin in October of this year.
No additional cost to you as a resident of the City of Knoxville with household garbage collection service. The City’s initial curbside recycling program will be offered to the first 20,000 households that sign up. This new service is funded in part by a grant from the Federal government and through recommended cost saving measures to the City’s overall solid waste program.

Recylebank is a rewards program that provides you with discounts on goods and services based on the pounds of materials you recycle.
Subscription customers of the Waste Connections household curbside recycling program who live in the City limits will automatically be included in the new program with the City. Existing customers will not be billed for their service after September 30 of this year. If there are adjustments to the pick-up schedule, you will be notified in September.

The City will maintain key Drop Center Recycling locations to serve multi-family residents, apartments and small businesses.

Sign up today to be a part of the City’s initial 20,000 households enrolled in the new curbside recycling program.

    I tried online and could not get it to work. I got all the way to the end and it says my session timed out. I called the 311# and left a voicemail.


  1. […] signed up for Recyclebank? It is free to sign up and you can earn points through their household recycling program (not available everywhere) or through other activities, like this […]
