How Do I Start Curbside Recycling?
Recycling in Buena Vista is more convenient than ever. With curbside recycling (really, alleyway recycling), you just set your recyclables out with your regular trash pick-up. Once per week, your recycling will be picked up, just like your trash. Here is how to start recycling.
**The City of Buena Vista provides every household with an 18 gallon blue tote free of charge. Use the tote to collect recycling throughout the week and place the tote outside to dispose of your recycling the night before your regular trash pick-up. If you move, please be sure to return your blue tote.
If you did not receive a blue tote, please call 261-1444
If you need a bigger tote. You can use a regular trash can (no larger than 32 gallons) and make it a recycle bin by requesting a “Designated Bin Sticker.” Simply call 261-1444 and provide your name and address or stop by the Buena Vista Treasurers Office at 2039 Sycamore Avenue.
