Fort Wayne One Cart Recycling

ONE CART RECYCLING

With one cart recycling, you no longer have to sort your recyclables into separate bins.  The yellow-top carts can handle all of your recyclables recycle_cart– including plastics #1 through #7.

Just because an item can’t go in your recycling cart, doesn’t necessarily mean the item can’t be recycled.  Find out more about recycling outside the bin by visiting the recycle section of this website.

Visit www.recyclefortwayne.org for more information!

HERE IS HOW YOU CAN PARTICIPATE

Call the City of Fort Wayne at 311 to sign up for your yellow-top container for recyclables

All recyclables are to be placed in this one container (no sorting is required)

Plastics #1 through #7 are accepted (look on the bottom of containers for numbers enclosed in recycling arrows)

Collection is every other week

Place your recycling cart near your trash cart, facing the street or alley, leaving a 3-foot space between the two
