Trash & Recycling

Trash and Recycling Pickup

Trash and recycling pickup for the City of Evart is provided by Republic Services. Trash pickup is every Wednesday with occasional exceptions due to holidays.  Recycling is on the B-Weeks or light blue days. Each residence is provided a wheeled, covered 96 gallon cart for trash. Recycling is every other Wednesday.  Please see the schedule below.

Items to be recycled must be placed in a recycling bin at the curb.  Bins are available at the Depot and residents are allowed more than one at no charge.  Recyclables must be clean and dry and should not be bagged.

What Can Be Put to the Curb for Regular Trash Pickup?  

Each week, each residence may fill the 96-gallon blue Republic wheeled cart and are allowed one large bulk item.  Please note:  mattresses and box springs MUST be wrapped in plastic.  Only one of these items will be picked up at a time.  For those producing too much trash for the cart, a second cart may be provided for $12/month.  Alternatively, excess trash may be placed in blue Republic bags (available at the Depot for $2.75/bag Monday through Thursday, 7am-5pm) and stacked next to the cart.  Extra trash MUST be in the blue Republic bags or it will NOT be picked up.

Cart Placement & Removal: Please place your cart to the curb after 6:00pm the night prior to collection with the handle of the cart towards the house.  Remove all carts after collection, as per the City ordinance all carts shall be removed from the curb following collection and no later than 8:00 pm on the collection day.
