Single StreamRecycling

One Step. One Bin.

Single Stream Recycling Truck

Single-stream recycling is now available from Emmons. You can place all your recyclables in one bin – no sorting – and we’ll take it from there.

We offer both pick-up and drop-off recycling services for the convenience of our customers. Our drop-off site is also open to the general public, because we want to help people with their recycling efforts.

What is single stream?
With single-stream recycling, you no longer have to sort glass, plastic, paper and metal within your recycling bin. Just mix all your recyclables together – they will be sorted once they’re delivered to the recycling center designed to process and sort the mixed recyclables.

What are the benefits?
Single-stream recycling eliminates the hassle and confusion of sorting recyclable items. It makes recycling as fast and easy as trash disposal. That’s good for you – and the environment.

What do I need to do?
First, you'll need to sign-up for the single stream recycling program. This is easily done by calling 787.8710 or sending an email to Simply put all your recyclables in the recycling bin and place it curbside next to your Curby trash bin!
