Curbside Recycling

 

The Curbside Recycling Program makes it easier than ever for single family households in the City of Lansing to go green and start recycling.  The convenient "single stream" curbside recycling means no sorting and many more materials are accepted!  

If you do not have a recycling cart, please call 517-483-4400 or email recycle@lansingmi.gov
