Residents in Treasure Island are provided single-stream curbside recycling service once a week. Recyclables are picked up curbside in city-provided containers on Thursdays for residents north of 107th Avenue and on Fridays for residents south of 107th Avenue.
What is single stream recycling?
Single stream recycling allows residents to combine all recyclable materials into one single container for collection. The single stream recycling reduces sorting efforts and allows more types of recyclables to be placed at the curb.
What receptacle do I use for my recyclables?
Republic Services will provide each City of Treasure Island resident a fixed lid wheeled cart. The carts are to be placed at the curb for the Republic Services automated recycling truck to perform the collection of recycled materials. The carts are easy to roll and control when placing at the curb.
Where do I place my cart?
Roll the cart to the curb. Place cart at least ten feet (10) away from mail boxes, trees, cars, etc. so that the automated truck can easily reach them.
