Curbside Recycling

The City of Mansfield provides residents with blue curbside recycling carts. View the recycling schedule online.

Note: The City does not currently provide trash carts. Residents may use their own containers for trash. All trash must be in plastic bags or garbage cans/carts weighing no more than 35 pounds when full. Do not place trash in your blue recycle cart.

Request or Exchange a Cart

Click HERE to request or exchange a recycling cart. If you have requested an exchange, you may still use the old cart until your exchange has been completed. Requests will be completed within a few days of the submission.

Follow these simple steps to using your recycling cart:

  1. Use your blue recycling cart for recyclable materials only.
  2. Recyclables should be empty, clean and dry. 
  3. Place the cart at the curb with the lid opening facing the street.
  4. Carts do not have to be completely full to be set out, but it is recommend to put them out as full as possible.
  5. Remember to put your cart by 7 a.m.  on your collection day.
  6. Place your cart where it will be accessible from the street, and not behind a mailbox, car or other obstruction.

Cart Care Suggestions:

  1. Paint or label your address on your cart
  2. The cart will remain with the delivery address. Do not move carts to new address or place your name on the cart.
  3. Keep cart free of food or liquid that would contaminate recyclables.
  4. Periodically, you may need to wash the inside of the cart with water and dish soap and let air dry.

Wisteria St. provides dumpsters for residents to drop-off recycling Monday - Friday between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.  Enter through the call gate, and place your recyclables in the purple dumpsters.
