DFC Recycling Program – September Pick Up Dates


  • Simply leave your recycling in a clear plastic bag or plastic shopping bag in front of your unit on specific pick up dates and times. Please do not leave recycling out on any dates / times outside of the posted schedule.
  • Please ensure that you are only placing accepted recycling items into your bags. If you aren’t sure, please visit the cities Waste Wizard page or contact Ryan Hayward for printed materials.
