CART BASED RECYCLING

The City of Albany introduced a new cart-based recycling program in 2016 and is now expanding to more properties throughout the city. The Department of General Services will be delivering a new cart to eligible properties. Each week these carts will be collected by automated or semi-automated trucks. The system is safer, easier and cleaner than a traditional recycling program.


Recycling is mandatory in the City of Albany, and this new program will help make that more convenient for residents. The program will still be single stream, so all recyclable materials can be placed in the new carts without being sorted. These carts will be more than twice the size of the current recycling bins, allowing residents to recycle more and waste less.
