Extra Holiday Recycling Days & Holiday Refuse Collection

Residents are encouraged to take advantage of extra, free curbside recycling days during the 2022-2023 holiday season. Residents who live west of Abbot Road will have extra recycling days on Nov. 28 and Dec. 12 and residents who live east of Abbot Road will have extra recycling days on Dec. 5 and Dec. 19.  Residents can fill their carts with clean, accepted items and place them at the curb on these extra days offered in addition to normal recycling collection days. Carts must be at the curb by 7:30 a.m. to ensure collection. Community members can learn more about what items are accepted in the curbside recycling program at www.cityofeastlansing.com/recycle

For items that cannot be recycled, the City will offer No-Fee Holiday Refuse Collection Dec. 13-29. During this time, extra refuse can be disposed of without the use of yellow City bags. Refuse will be collected on residents' normal collection day, except where changes are necessary due to holidays. Bags must weigh no more than 40 pounds.
