Get Recycling Reminders from Republic Services

Depending upon your collection area, text 'blue' or 'grey' to 292929 to receive reminders at the beginning of your collection week to place your recycling cart at the curb on your recycling day. To receive text alerts when holidays or weather affect your collection, text "republic" to 292929. Note that these alerts are not targeted specifically to the company's Plymouth customers.

Missed Collection 
If your recycling cart was at the curb by 7:00 a.m. on your recycling day of your collection week and was not picked up by the end of day, contact Republic Services. During snow emergencies collection can be delayed. If your scheduled day is during a snow emergency and you are missed, place your cart at the curb the next morning for collection.

What is Recyclable?
See a list of acceptable and non-acceptable materials for curbside recycling.

Place all acceptable recyclable materials loosely in your cart. No sorting is necessary. If you need a replacement cart, want an extra cart, or would like to change the size of you cart, contact Republic Services. There is no additional fee for these requests. Bags, boxes or containers with extra recycling are not permitted outside of the recycling cart and will not be removed. Extra recycling that does not fit in your cart may be taken to the Recycling Drop-Off Site.  

Recycling Fees
Residents in single-family homes and townhomes pay a $2.75 per month solid waste fee. This fee is charged bi-monthly and helps support the curbside recycling collection program, Recycling Drop-Off Site, Yard Waste Site, environmental education, special events, and the Adopt a Street program.
