No-Sort Recycling

Recycling schedule and reminders

Post Date:07/07/2017 9:35 am

No sort recycling is in full swing in the City of Moorhead!  The new, blue recycling trucks have been around to neighborhoods starting this week and crews have seen an increase in recycling participation.

A few reminders with the new program:

  • No sorting!  All items can be placed loosely in the blue 96-gallon totes.  View the No-Sort Recycling Guide for a detailed list of accepted and unaccepted items.  A quick reference guide is also available on the lid of the tote.  No plastic bags, please!
  • The recycling schedule is the same.  Recycling is picked up every other week on regularly scheduled garbage days.
    • Find your recycling week:
      1. Download the Recycling Map and find your neighborhood to determine your garbage day and recycling week (A or B).
      2. Download the Recycling Week Calendar to find your recycling dates.
  • Place recycling totes on the curb before 5 am, 2 feet from any obstacles including garbage totes, mailboxes, hydrants, and vehicles.
  • Apartments can participate!  Place your recyclables in the 300-gallon container or blue recycling dumpster located near the existing garbage dumpster.
  • Old, 18-gallon bins are still available.  Pick-up for free (one per household) at Moorhead City Hall (3rd Floor), 500 Center Ave, or Public Works, 700 15 Ave N, Monday - Friday, 8:00 am - 4:30 pm.

For more information, visit or contact Public Works at 218.299.5422.  Thank you for participating in the program!
