Too Much Recycling?

Are paper, plastic, cardboard and metal filling up your recycling cart? Are you wondering what to do with recyclables that can’t fit?

Seattle residents can recycle unlimited amounts of recyclables for free! If you have too many recyclables to fit in your recycling cart, put them in sturdy bins, boxes or 32-gallon cans next to your recycling cart on collection day. Flatten cardboard boxes. Do not put recyclables in bags.
