The Division of Public Works, Solid Waste Department provides a biweekly curbside collection of single stream recyclables on the same day as trash pickup. All recyclables can go into the same recycling bin or recycling cart. There is no need to separate recyclables. Recyclables can also be dropped off at the Nashua Recycling Center during normal business hours. With your help, we can keep recyclables out of the Four Hills Landfill and extend the life of the landfill for Nashua residents.
How to Purchase a Recycling Cart
The Solid Waste Department is inviting residents to “Invest in Nashua’s Future - Recycle” by buying a bright green recycling cart for use in the biweekly collection program for Single Stream recycling. The 96-gallon cart is being offered at our cost of $60; this fee will not be reimbursed if the City ever provides carts citywide at some time in the future. Recycling carts can be purchased at the Scale House.
Contact the Solid Waste Department at 603-589-3413 if you have any questions.
