Employees of the Solid Waste Department pick up curbside recyclables from residential accounts within the corporation limits. There is no charge for this service. Recyclables can be placed in a City blue recycle bin or similar bin. The first City recycling bin is free; replacement bins are $8.00 each and can be purchased at the City Utility Office located at 106 East Spring Street. If more than one bin is set out, recyclables must be pre-sorted. Recyclables are collected the same day as your regular trash pick-up. Recycling bins must be placed at the curb (not alleys) by 7:00 a.m. You should print your address on the side of the recycling bin.

NOTICE - THERE WILL NOT BE ADDITIONAL RECYCLING DATES IN 2017
Recyclables are sorted primarily at curbside, except plastics that are co-mingled and sorted at the Auglaize County Recycling Facility. The curbside operation is completed by one person utilizing one route truck. All recyclables are taken to the Auglaize County Recycling Facility on River Road. The City is reimbursed for all recyclables pre-sorted before delivery to the County facility. In addition, Recycling Collection maintains the volunteer Recycling Center on Chestnut Street. At this location, volunteers man the center on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of every month, 8:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. The materials brought to the volunteer center are often generated by residents outside the corporation limit who are not served by curbside collection, or by households wishing to recycle large quantities of material, including cardboard. The proceeds from the recycling collection go to the volunteer organization sorting the recycling items. If you have an organization wishing to participate in a recycling event to earn funds, contact the City Solid Waste Department.
A limited cardboard route is available to several commercial accounts on the City of St. Marys' commercial hopper service.
