Recycling Services

Curbside Recycling Program (Bi-Weekly Collection)

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!  Convenient recycling carts are emptied every other week.

Commercial Recycling Options

We offer convenient, "single stream" weekly recycling service to businesses located in the City of Lansing. Single stream recycling will be provided, which means that there is no sorting required, all materials go into the same container, making recycling very easy.

Together we can make a difference! For every 1000 tons of recyclables that the City collects:

  • 14,903 trees are saved
  • 6,404,606 gallons of water are saved
  • 408,412 gallons of gasoline are saved
  • 2,856 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions are saved
