City to Resume Curbside Recycling Collection
(COLUMBIA, MO) - The City of Columbia Solid Waste Utility will resume residential curbside collection on an every-other-week schedule beginning Feb. 1, 2021.
At this time, the City's Solid Waste Utility is sufficiently staffed to offer a curbside recycling program on a reduced basis.
On alternating weeks, customers can put their blue recycling bags and paper and cardboard bundles curbside on their regular weekly scheduled refuse pickup day.
Customers will receive a mailer to confirm their scheduled weeks for recycling collection. Residents whose recycling pickup is scheduled for the week of Feb. 1 will then put out their recycling the weeks of Feb. 15, March 1, March 15, etc. Customers whose pickup is scheduled for the week of Feb. 8 will then put out their recycling the weeks of Feb. 22, March 8, March 22, etc.
The City of Columbia website will soon be updated with an interactive feature that will help residents determine their recycling schedule. Customers can also download the CoMo Recycle and Trash app to receive weekly reminders on refuse and recycling collection days.
We realize the suspension of curbside recycling has been an inconvenience for many of our residents. The City of Columbia appreciates the citizens' patience as we work to restore this service for our customers.
