The City of Pensacola has entered into an agreement with Emerald Coast Utilities Authority to be partners in recycling. We look forward to a long-lasting relationship and hope you will be able to help make that happen. Please take a moment to inform yourself about what goes in your recycle bin. Let’s recycle right.

Curbside Recycling

Curbside recycling collection is provided once a week. With the city recycling cart you can easily separate recyclables from your normal household garbage by placing the following recyclable items in your recycling cart. Placing nonrecyclable items in your recycling cart contaminates the target recyclables and hurts the program.

Remember to place your recycling cart curbside by 6 a.m. on your collection day and remove your cart from the curb after collection. If you have any questions, you can contact customer service at 850-435-1890.
