****Due to unprecedented weather conditions the week of February 15th, some of our residential routes were delayed.  If we were unable to service your location, we will be taking additional bags on your next regularly scheduled service day.  For recycling, you can have boxes or personal containers (marked as recycling) outside of your recycle cart the week of March 1st. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Residential Recycling

Residential Recycling in Wichita helps to ensure our children and our community enjoy a better and brighter future by reducing our need for raw materials and dependence on fossil fuels.

Most residential recycling is picked up every other week on the same day as trash (some exceptions may apply). Calendars are supplied to all of our residential customers marking the weeks of pickup and can also be found here:  2021 Recycling Calendars.

Call at 316-838-4920 to join our Wichita Recycling Program.
