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. 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.
NOTE: Additional bin is subject to space availability after some holidays. At times, only one will be taken.
Additional recylables can be dropped off at the 24 hour drop-off at the St. Marys Township Fire Department on State Route 364 and the Auglaize County Recycle Center at 15502 River Road.
Remember: If it's not clean, it's not useable!
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.
A limited cardboard route is available to several commercial accounts on the City of St. Marys' commercial hopper service.
